Buddy Walk 2023

Join us on September 9, 2023


The Buddy Walk, held at Sawyer Point Park, 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 in Cincinnati is a short 1 mile stroll, starting and finishing throughout Sawyer Point Park and Yeatman's Cove.  We kick off the morning with a pre-party at 9:00 AM and start the walk at 10:00 AM.  The walk route is filled with entertainment, music and joy at every turn.  When finished, join our after-party with food, drinks and fun for everyone to enjoy.

Be sure to register by the T-Shirt deadline to secure your free Buddy Walk T-Shirt (August 4th).  Click here for a few more important dates!  Online registration for the walk will remain open through Thursday, September 7th.  No day of/in person registration.
