Support This Event
THANK YOU to everyone who came out and to everyone (near or far) who supported the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati's 13th Annual Buddy Walk! Unbelievable sunshine, overwhelming success and a wonderful celebration! A special thank you to Dave Jansen, who comes out every year and captures such wonderful memories with the images he takes! Be sure to check out our facebook page to view this year's photos.
A couple of reminders:
♦ October 1st is the deadline to be considered for TEAM APPRECIATION PACKAGES. If you have any questions regarding this year's packages, please email Events@dsagc.com.
♦ Did you check with your employer to see if the donation you made to the Buddy Walk was eligible for a matching gift? For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $250 to the DSAGC, which is a 501(c)(3) organization, Bank of America will "match" that $250 donation and write a check for the same amount to the DSAGC.
♦ Save the date for next year's Buddy Walk which will be held at Sawyer Point on Saturday, September 12th, 2015!
2014 Registration & Fundraising Deadlines

If your team raises $5000 or more by July 24th, you will be entered into a drawing to have your Team name or Team Logo on the back of the 2014 Buddy Walk T-Shirt
♦July 30th - Registration & T-Shirts
We ask that Team Captains and Walkers register online by this date in order to be guaranteed a FREE T-Shirt. If it helps, we can send Captains their team list from 2013 (with shirt sizes) so it's easier for you to input info for 2014. We ask for you to register so we can get you the size you want. But don't worry, the possibility of you not receving a shirt are slim to none!
