Educate | Advocate | Celebrate

The DSAGWS Buddy Walk and Family Fun Day is the primary fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Winston-Salem (DSAGWS). In addition to raising funds and awareness, it's a great place to meet other families and learn about the rewards of having a child with Down syndrome.

Each year our attendance has grown and we’re expecting over 1,500 people this year to participate in this family friendly event which includes food, entertainment, carnival games, educational information, talent show, music and more.

Each registrant gets a FREE Buddy Walk t-shirt! Register before October 1st to guarantee your shirt size.
