The Buddy Walk is the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati’s largest fundraising and awareness event of the year, attracting over 13,000 participants and raising half of the annual revenue needed to fulfill our mission. Together, we walk to celebrate the extraordinary lives of people with Down syndrome and raise much needed funds to provide programs, support, resources, outreach and advocacy to our community.  

The Buddy Walk is a short 1 mile stroll, starting and finishing throughout Sawyer Point Park and Yeatman's Cove.  We kick of the morning with a pre-party and start the walk at 10:00 AM.  The walk route is filled with entertainment, music and fun at every turn.  When finished, stroll right into our after party - designed fun for all ages, with food and drink for everyone to enjoy.

2021 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati and the 20th Annual Buddy Walk!  These are 2 major milestones that we are excited to be celebrating with you!

We are hopeful that our Buddy Walk festivities will take place in Sawyer Point this year.  To do so, we may need to make some adjustments to our typical walk morning.  Be sure to read Buddy Walk communications that may come your way and visit this page for updates.
