The Buddy Walk ® is a Family Fun Event including a walk and many post-walk activities. Walkers may choose a 5K fitness walk or 1 mile advocacy walk followed by family fun activities including a free breakfast, a dunk tank, bounce house, petting zoo, rock wall, pony rides, and a raffle and silent auction. The event raises funds for the Gold Coast Down Syndrome’s educational, social and advocacy programs and promotes awareness of the capabilities and talents of persons with Down syndrome. New This Year: Hot dogs, hamburgers and other food will be available at the Walk for a small donation courtesy of G4S Secure Solutions, who will be donating all the supplies and 100% of the proceeds to Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization. Benefits: Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization, a non-profit serving children and adults with Down syndrome and their families through education, advocacy, support and social programs. The Buddy Walk® raised $155,000 last year and funds a major portion of Gold Coast programs. Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization serves the entire Palm Beach County.
