The 26th Annual Pittsburgh Buddy Walk will be held on Saturday October 3, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our greatest priority is to keep our community safe and healthy, and therefore the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh will be hosting a virtual walk! From a distance we can make a difference! You can walk, bike, run, swim, or roll your Buddy Walk. With your support and involvement, the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh can fund the specialized medical care provided to all ages with Ds at the Down Syndrome Center of Western PA; provide meaningful resources, educational opportunities, and support to families/caregivers of individuals with Ds; as well as host programs and events for our Down syndrome community.
While we won't be physically together at Highmark Stadium on October 3, we welcome you to tune in to our virtual programming from 10:00-10:40 AM as we live-stream here! Jump on to see an amazing special guest joining us from CA kicking off the walk! We will also be joined by the team from the Down Syndrome Center, top team captains, DSAP board members, and more!
Invite your friends, family, and even pets to join us as we promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome!
