THE BUDDY WALK® 
 
The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to over 250 each year with at least one in every state across the country and many abroad.  The Buddy Walk program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups and other organizations, schools, and motivated individuals. 
 
Alexander's Angels, Inc. has been the organizer of the Buddy Walk® on Long Island since its inception in 2007.  Funds raised benefit local programs and services, Down syndrome cognitive research, as well as local and national advocacy and awareness initiative that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

When Kyle Erickson, one of our self advocates, arrived at the park, his mom said: 
Oh Kyle, it's downpouring! 
 
Kyle replied:
"It will be fine Mom, it's down-pouring for Down!
