This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Boardwalk Buddy Walk!

Since 2006, the mission of the Boardwalk Buddy Walk has been to create a community where people with Down syndrome, or any cognitive disorder, can live, learn, work, and play.  On October 5, 2019, we will celebrate our efforts.  The community in Rehoboth Beach will see us dance and sing, and those who see us will understand how valuable our lives are to each other.  The next day our mission continues, but there will be more of us then.
