The Buddy Walk® has three primary goals:
· To promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome
· To raise funds for local and national programs
· To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice
Since its inception in 1979, NDSS has served as the national advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
The MI Great Buddy Walk® advocates for the value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
In addition, the MI Great Buddy Walk® raises funds for local organizations and events that promote the education and well being of individuals with Down Syndrome and other disabilities.
