Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry hosts the 11th Annual Buddy Walk on October 5 at Etiwan Park in Daniel Island

On Sunday, October 5, the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry (DSAL) will host the 11th annual Buddy Walk in Etiwan Park on Daniel Island. The Buddy Walk is a national event celebrated around the country in honor of community members with Down syndrome. This year, DSAL plans to continue its long-standing traditions of local entertainment, lunch provided by the organization’s partners, a park full of jump castles and treats for the kids, and a one-mile fun walk through Etiwan Park with high school bands and cheerleaders spiriting participants along. This annual event traditionally brings thousands of supporters together to help celebrate those with Down syndrome. Registration for the walk is $15.

As the primary fundraising event for DSAL, the Buddy Walk is not only fun and festive, but also an important opportunity for the community to show support of the DSAL organization and mission. The community sponsors who participate in the Buddy Walk make a huge impact on the DSAL’s mission to provide support to new parents; enrich lives through art, athletic and educational opportunities and events; increase community awareness of Down Syndrome; enhance employment opportunities for people with Down Syndrome; and improve education for students with Down Syndrome.

Several different sponsorship opportunities are still available. Those interested in sponsoring the Buddy Walk should contact Courtney Brady at [email protected] or by calling 843.614.7696. Those interested in donating to DSAL should visitwww.dsalowcountry.org/get_connected/donate.html.
