18th Annual Buddy Walk

Join us for an All-Star celebration! The 18th Annual Community Link Buddy Walk on is on September 14, 2024 at Northside Park in Breese, IL. We will kick things off at 10am, and the Buddy Walk will begin at 11am. We are looking forward to another beautiful day to celebrate individuals with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities.

The Buddy Walk was established by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to raise awareness and support programs for those with Down syndrome. Community Link is proud to have one of the larger walks in the country to support local programs while contributing 2.5% of proceeds to NDSS for national initiatives.
