Description

We are a statewide organization of people who have Down syndrome, their families, friends and interested professionals. We help reach out to new parents and parents-to-be, and help our families support one another through education and social events.

The Buddy Walk is our biggest fundraiser -- it provides 90% of our yearly operating expenses. Walkers collect pledges for completing a short walk on a groomed, accessible trail at Hammonasset State Park. Following the walk, there is music, food, family entertainment and good company.
