In 2018, the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization made the decision to rename our walk the DownRight ExtraOrdinary Walk for Down Syndrome to avoid paying a licensing fee for the Buddy Walk® name, which was costing us thousands of dollars each year. We chose the name DownRight ExtraOrdinary to represent the extra 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome and to highlight the amazing capabilities of people with Down syndrome. Since the walk is completely local, we wanted our own name and to keep all the funding in our community. It’s a new name–but it’s still the same ExtraOrdinary Walk!
