Buddy Walk® is the most widely recognized public awareness event for the Down syndrome community. Locally, it is the largest fundraising and awareness event for Down Syndrome Indiana. Buddy Walk® is a family-friendly event open to all children and adults with Down syndrome, their families, friends and thousands of local supporters.

As a direct result of event sponsorships, team fundraising and generous public donations, Down Syndrome Indiana is able to continue providing New Parent Packets, educational resources, informational programs, parent support networks, and social events for individuals with Down syndrome.

For more information about serving on a planning committee, sponsoring a Buddy Walk, volunteering or hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Buddy Walk®, please contact buddywalk@dsindiana.org or contact the Down Syndrome Indiana office at 317-925-7617. You can also use a donation form to track offline donations made to your team!   


The Buddy Walk® has three primary goals:
  • To promote acceptance & inclusion of people with Down syndrome
  • To raise funds locally and nationally for education, research and advocacy programs
  • To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice
