Buddy Walk

The Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan is excited for our 2018 Buddy Walk®. It is our largest fundraising and awareness event. The Buddy Walk® is a family-friendly event open to all people with Down syndrome, their families, friends and thousands of local supporters.

The Buddy Walk® has three primary goals:

  • Promote acceptance & inclusion of people with Down syndrome
  • Raise funds locally for education, research, and advocacy programs
  • Enhance the position of the Down syndrome community thus enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice

As a direct result of corporate sponsorships, team fundraising, and generous public donations, We are 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® team; hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Buddy Walk®; or volunteering please contact info@dsgsemi.org or the Down Syndrome Guild office at 248-556-5341.
