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
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.
