In Indianapolis, the Buddy Walk® presented by Down Syndrome Indiana is a 2.6 mile no-fee walk along the canal beginning at Celebration Plaza in White River State Park. Proceeds from the walk help fund Down Syndrome Indiana programs and services that help individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
The Buddy Walk® has three primary goals:
- To promote acceptance & inclusion of people with Down syndrome;
- To raise funds locally and nationally for education, research and advocacy programs;
- To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice.
Throughout the day please visit a Why I Walk station, stop by our DSI table to learn about the programs and Services of Down Syndrome Indiana and how you can get involved; gather information on resources throughout Indiana at our information tent, shop for an early holiday gift while also supporting DSI at our marketplace tent, visit the kids’ activity tent sponsored by Noble of Indiana and indulge in kettle corn or a lemon shake up or a beverage from Four Day Ray Brewery. Don’t forget to rally your team for a team photo!!
