The CCDSIG has hosted our annual Buddy Walk in Chester County since 2000. This event brings families in our community together to promote awareness and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome. Registration fees and donations from this event are invested back in our members to offer financial support for expenses such as camp fees, fitness/therapy fees, educational opportunities, parent seminars and more! 

This year each team will have their moment to shine!  We will announce each team alphabetically and allow a few minutes for the teams to start walking.  Be sure to register by September 15th to receive a Buddy Walk t-shirt. 

If you’re not able to attend in-person you can still participate!  

REGISTER to walk 1 mile with us at West Goshen Park on Sunday, October 10th (starts at 10am). We also welcome virtual participation if you cannot join us in person. To receive a free Buddy Walk t-shirt, register by 9/15/2021 (details for shirt pick-up will be provided at a later date).
