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.

Help raise Down syndrome awareness, enjoy live music, family activities, good food, and great company and get a little exercise.  All pledges are welcome, but raise a minimum of $50, and you’ll receive an incentive prize!

Prizes are also awarded for first male, female and child (Runners); highest pledge and donations; most Buddies; and highest team pledge and donations.

Runners (Indiv. – 5 km)  $20
Walkers (Indiv. – 2 km)  $10
