 9th Annual Buddy Walk - Now Virtual


Now Virtual!

Help us raise funds for The Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT).

21 days to walk on your own, or with your family!

Developed by the National Down Syndrome Association (NDSS) in 1995, the Buddy Walk® promotes awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome. It also aims to raise funds for education, research, advocacy and community based programs. The Buddy Walk® is the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.

What is a Virtual Walk?

Due to Covid-19, DSAT has decided to take the Buddy Walk virtual! Between August 15th and September 4th, participants can take part in raising awareness and funds by walking 3KM on their own or with family anywhere that maintains safe physical distancing. The 21-day event will be shared on all social platforms, followed by a virtual celebration on September 6th with contests, prizes and entertainment!

We encourage individuals and teams to take part on social media. Share with us how you're completing your walk by tagging us in a photo or video and using the hashtag #DSATBW2021 to be featured on our social media channels and be automatically entered in our contests!

Every dollar counts! DSAT receives no government funding and relies on private donations to provide programming for our community In response to COVID-19, DSAT has launched over 30 virtual programs held monthly to keep our community connected and thriving!
