Buddy Walk

Buddy Walk

Thanks to all who joined us Sunday, September 27, for a day of family fun and festivities celebrating the abilities and accomplishments of Mainers with Down syndrome!  Maine Down Syndrome Network was proud to sponsor our 15th Annual walk at Payson Park, Portland and our 6th Annual walk at Capitol Park, Augusta.  Funds raised totaled more than 20K!  Congrats to our top fundraising team, William’s First Birthday Celebration.

The Buddy Walk is a day of family friendly fun, celebration the abilities and accomplishments of Mainers with Down syndrome.  It is also the largest fundraiser for the Maine Down Syndrome Network.  With the funds raised, we are able to provide information packets to families receiving a new diagnosis, social activities, conferences, workshops and future Buddy Walks!  Everything we do is funded by this amazing event, which also happens to be an incredible amount of fun!
