The Buddy Walk is the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati’s largest fundraising and awareness event of the year with over 15,000 participants, donors, and community partners. 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. 


Buddy Walk Cincinnati is a short 1-mile stroll through 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.  After the walk, stay for the after-party with food, drinks, and fun for everyone to enjoy.

Additional things to note:

  • Anyone registered by August 5th will receive a FREE Buddy Walk T-Shirt.  
  • Online registration for the walk will remain open through Saturday morning, September 7th.  There will be no in person registration the day of the Buddy Walk, so be sure to sign up early!
