Triangle Buddy Walk

Date/Time

October 6, 2019
01:30 PM until 05:30 PM

Description

The Triangle Down Syndrome Network (TDSN) is hosting the 21st annual Buddy Walk to raise funds to provide assistance and resources to individuals with Down syndrome in the Triangle area and throughout North Carolina. This year, the walk will be held on October 6 at the Archer Community Center in Clayton, NC from 1:30 to 5:30pm.

“This is a day of celebration and a day we honor individuals with Down syndrome in our community,” says Christina Reaves, Executive Director of the Triangle Down Syndrome Network. “All are invited to join us on the Buddy Walk as we promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down syndrome and raise funds for education, research and advocacy programs.”

It’s important to note that connecting families early, providing resources, and training parents on best practices gives the TDSN the ability to train a generation of individuals with Down syndrome whose potential is limitless. By providing these intervention services, children with Down syndrome are learning to read, interacting with others, driving cars, graduating high school and working in meaningful employment. This was not the case just 20 years ago.

A major piece of the TDSN’s evolution is to expand further to the Eastern and Western parts of the state and pay close attention to underserved areas. Ms. Reaves, her staff and Board of Directors have been working on developing a plan to accomplish this and will be announcing it at the Buddy Walk October 6 for implementation in 2020.

All are welcomed to join the TDSN at this year’s Buddy Walk. It will be held on October 6 at the Archer Lodge Community Center in Clayton, NC from 1:30 to 5:30pm. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, all are welcome on this day of celebration.
