Chicagoland Buddy Walk
The Chicagoland Buddy Walk is ran by all parents and families of individuals with Down syndrome. Once a year we have a 1-mile walk to support local individuals and groups involved with making a better life in the Down syndrome world. Not only do we have a beautiful walk through the Bolingbrook Golf Club grounds, we also have many other family activities to enjoy throughout the day. Please check the Walk Schedule for a list of this years events.
As you may know the Buddy Walk is ran entirely by volunteers!! So we are calling on a few to help the walk run smoothly.
If you can spare a few hours the day of the walk please sign up here.
If you would like to get more involved and would like to help with the planning please send an email to email@example.com
Just [timer] until the 2015 walk!
