New Directions
Our 2016 Buddy Walk brought in over 1,200 attendees, and we raised over $27,000! We appreciate everyone who was a part of our day!!
Special thank you to Lawrence Imagery and Ryan Larson Photography for capturing moments during our event!
(More photos can be seen on our Facebook Page.)

The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk has grown from 17 walks Audemars Piguet Replica in 1995 to over 250 events across the country and around the world in 2015! Millions of dollars are raised nationwide each year to benefit local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy initiatives of NDSS that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

"The Buddy Walk® is always amazing… otherwise we wouldn't travel from Minnesota every year to attend! What we love the most is the friendly atmosphere, not only from the staff and sponsors, but the families especially; everyone is always relaxed and positive, and always willing to listen and lend a hand, if needed. We will continue supporting the New Directions' Buddy Walk® and its message!" "
We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of our 2016 Buddy Walk Sponsors!
