About The Buddy Walk

Each year in celebration of National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, communities all across the country participate in Buddy Walks to raise awarenss of this common genetic condition. On Saturday October 14, 2017, The Columbus Area Down Syndrome Support Group, in partnership with The Arc Bartholomew County, will be hosting their 17th annual Buddy Walk.

The proceeds from the Buddy Walk are used to provide services and supports to families in South Central Indiana. A portion of the funds are used to fund programming at The Arc Center for Excellence in Columbus, Indiana.
