The Lower Mainland Down Syndrome Society (LMDSS) is hosting it’s 5th Annual Buddy Walk combined with a 5 km Run!
Developed in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society, the Canadian Down Syndrome Society (CDSS) adopted this event as a way to promote awareness to the general public about Down syndrome. As an affiliate member to CDSS, LMDSS supports CDSS by holding the Buddy Walk so that funds can be raised both locally and nationally.
