Since 1995, the Buddy Walk® has become the premier advocacy event for Down syndrome in the United States. It is also the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.



Chesapeake Down Syndrome provides support and information to people with Down syndrome and their families in the Baltimore metropolitan area.


Our families are some of the strongest and most resilient.
They need a lifetime of continuous support and constant stream of up-to-date information about Down syndrome and disability acceptance and inclusion.
