Our 16th Annual Buddy Walk® is going VIRTUAL this year.  Our Buddy Walk® may be different this year but our mission is not. The safety and health of our members and our community is top priority.  Join DSAA as we unite for a common cause to raise funds at the 2020 Virtual Buddy Walk®. Teams will have 21 days (signifying the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome) to "WALK YOUR WAY" with family and friends in neighborhoods, local parks or wherever you choose from October 10th – October 31st. Even from a distance we can make a difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome, their families and our community!

To continue the celebration, we will be hosting a CAR PARADE on October 31st from 10 a.m. until Noon at The Bayou church, 2234 Kaliste Saloom Road. Join us from the comfort of your vehicle as we cheer and celebrate all individuals with Down syndrome.

History of Buddy Walk®

In 1995, thousands of steps were taken towards a better tomorrow. Since then, the Buddy Walk® has become known as the premier advocacy event for Down syndrome in the United States. It is also the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.
