Buddy Walk


In 1995, the National Down Syndrome Society established The Buddy Walk program to celebrate Down syndrome awareness.

When the citizens of Abilene first began to participate, organizers were unsure of how much of a turn out to expect. But as “the walk” kept getting bigger and bigger each year (with around 200-300 people typically in attendance), it has been a resounding success.

The annual event provides a great opportunity for the Down Syndrome support groups in the Abilene area to come together with their surrounding community, in support of and in honor of those living with Down Syndrome.
