Buddy Walk History

Buddy Walk_Original Poster_1995The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 to promote awareness, acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome and to celebrate October as National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. The Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization Buddy Walk in Palm Beach County, held in Haverhill Park, was one of the first of 17 walk locations across the United States in 1995. Today the walk raises an net average of $150,000 a year and provides the majority of the funding for the Gold Coast programs for children and adults.
