The Buddy Walk® will be a unique opportunity for vendors and other not-for-profit organizations to explain the services they provide to our community.  The Information Expo will be open from 9:00am to 3:00pm for families and their guests to explore. This year, we are expecting more than 5,000 participants, most of whom will at least walk through the tent once!  We ask that vendors make a $100 donation to the Buddy Walk® general fund in exchange for space in the Information Expo. Not-for-profit organizations with missions directly aligned with that of Down Syndrome Indiana are welcome to exhibit, free of charge. Tables and chairs will be provided for all exhibitors.
