 THE BUDDY WALK
Established 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 one in every state across the country and many abroad. The Buddy Walk® program is supported by NDSS. Alexander's Angels is the organizer of the Buddy Walk® in Long Island.
