Buddy Walk 2017 - Sunday, October 8th

at Millican Reserve in College Station


Our biggest event of the year is just around the corner! The 2017 Buddy Walk and 5K with a Little Extra will be held on October 8, 2017 at Millican Reserve in College Station. Your support of Buddy Walk enables a variety of educational and social programs throughout the year to benefit people with Down syndrome, from birth through adulthood. This year, our funds will go to support our education and outreach programs.


Additionally, we are donating 20% of our registration fees to those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.


The two organizations we will be supporting are the Down Syndrome Association of Houston and the Galveston-Houston Families Exploring Down Syndrome. Please consider registering to not only support our efforts in the Brazos Valley but also those along the Gulf Coast.


If you don’t want to walk or run, you can still register and come out for the party! There will be lots of fun for the whole family - bounce houses, lawn games, food trucks, games from Wertz Werks, entertainment, hayrides, and more!


Individuals with Down syndrome are free and everyone else is only $15.00. Everybody who registers by September 24th will also receive a free T-shirt! Bring a tent, canopy, lawn chairs, or blankets and spend the day with us. Food will be available for purchase from local food trucks. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks but no alcohol please.



Don't be left out! Please share this information with family, friends and those looking to assist with Hurricane Harvey relief. We can all help make a difference both here in the Brazos Valley and with our friends in Houston.


If you’re unable to attend, you can still help! DONATE HERE to help us reach our goal of $70,000.
