Upcoming Events

There might have been a stiff breeze on the morning of Oct. 22, but the wind couldn't dampen this Baltimore Buddy Walk's enthusiasm, that's for sure!

Many many thanks to the 1,000 walkers, runners, volunteers, exhibitors, special guests and other attendees of the third annual Baltimore Buddy Walk. We appreciate everyone who came out in support of Down syndrome awareness, acceptance and appreciation. Your participation and commitment to the localcommunity shows what we can do Together for Down Syndrome.

Visit for post-event news, photos of the walk, and to make a donation.


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.
