9th Annual Buddy Walk
October 10th, 2020
Jacksonville Commons Recreational Center
Our Annual Buddy Walk was a huge success, raising over 5K dollars to support our community serving those with Down Syndrome. Families across Carteret and Onslow Counties and as far west as Arizona celebrated this day with us. We would like to thank all of our supporters for making this year a success and furthermore DSNOCC a success.
We would love for everyone to share pictures from their day celebrating their loved ones!
The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk® is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training. Since its inception, the Buddy Walk® has grownacross the country. We were proud to bring this wonderful, heart-warming event to our community for the first time in 2012!
