The beloved Western Mass Buddy Walk is back for 2024, and will be held on Saturday October 5th, 2024 at Stanley Park, 400 Western Avenue in Westfield MA. We can't wait for this awesome event where families from all over Western Mass join forces and fundraise to support and empower those with Down syndrome, culminating in a walk around the beautiful Stanley Park.
The Buddy Walk is a national event originally created by the National Down Syndrome Society nearly four decades ago. Buddy Walks now happen all over the country during October, which is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. The goal of the walk is to raise awareness and enhance visibility to advance the acceptance, respect and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Western Mass walk is one of the main ways we raise funds to help support the community.
