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 Cantigny 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: http://bit.ly/chibwvol
