2015 marked the 21st Annual Buddy Walk® for the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization. We continue to spread our message of community awareness as the Buddy Walk® grows in supporters each year. The tremendously successful event, attended by over 2000 people, was held Sunday, October 18th in John Prince Park in Lake Worth and raised $175,000 for local programs. Teams set out on the One-Mile Advocacy walk in honor of all individuals who have Down syndrome. Back this year, and a big hit, our presenting sponsor G4S Secure Solutions (USA) provided lunch to participants for a nominal donation. We served breakfast goodies and more teams than ever pitched their own canopy to enjoy the day with family and friends. The stage served as our welcome area and entertainment hub. Looking out into the park, attendees could see bounce houses, pony rides, carnival games, face painters, a petting zoo, and much much more. It was a beautiful South Florida morning. Lots of teams and lots of thoughtfully designed banners showed Buddy Walk® spirit and support! We wish to thank all of our awesome 2015 Buddy Walkers,Sponsors, and Volunteers who help make our event better every year. This year’s beautiful kids mini posters featured over 30 of our children showcasing their unique interests and accomplishments.
