Join us for the 2019 CMDSS Buddy Walk & Fun Run

The annual Buddy Walk is CMDSS’s largest event and biggest fundraiser. We DO NOT charge for registration, but do encourage teams to fundraise for great incentives! This year our event will focus on our Buddies, including a Fun Run. This year will not include a 5K race.This year’s Central Mississippi Buddy Walk will be held on October 12, 2019 at Trustmark Park in Pearl, Mississippi. Over 1500 participants attend this event, forming teams in honor of our “buddies” with developmental disabilities. In addition to the Buddy Walk, the event includes a one-mile Fun-Run, games and entertainment, as well as a large silent auction.

What is the Buddy Walk®?

The Buddy Walk® was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to nearly 300 walks today. Each year, more than $12 million is raised across the country and around the world to support local programs and services, as well as national advocacy and public awareness initiatives of NDSS that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Central Mississippi Down Syndrome Society holds their Buddy Walk® in Pearl, Mississippi each October.
