Jersey Shore Down Syndrome Association is excited to announce the 2016 Buddy Walk!
We’re asking the community to join us! If you have Down Syndrome, know someone that has Down syndrome or just want to show support come join us! The Buddy Walk is a one-mile pledge walk designed to help increase public awareness and the acceptance of individuals with Down Syndrome as well as raise funds to support initiatives and services for them in our own communities.
The 2016 JSDSA Buddy Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, 2016, at 10:00am est (rain or shine). The walk will be held in the Picnic #2 Area of Winding River Park, Toms River, NJ. This event is more than an awareness walk. The event will include refreshments, activities and entertainment in a place where the community can relax, have fun and enjoy each others company.
Registration is necessary! You can register as an individual, family or as part of a team that you can start yourself or join another. If you are preregistered, go directly to registration to check-in and pick up your t-shirt. The deadline to preregister and receive a tshirt is Thursday, September 15, 2016. Tshirts CANNOT BE GUARANTEED to those who register after this date. Registration will also be available onsite on the day of the walk but tshirts are not guaranteed if you register on the day of the walk.
Donations are not required to participate in the walk. If you would like to collect donations, please feel free to share this event’s page with friends and they may make a donation there if they wish.
