The North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance and our affiliate Eastern NC Family empowers, educates and connects individuals with Down syndrome, their families and communities in North Carolina. This year we are hosting our fifth annual Buddy Walk® event to raise money allowing us to fulfill our mission in your community. With generous support we are able to implement age specific programming for kids with Down syndrome, provide parent workshops, aid medical professionals to ensure new families receive necessary information, and teach social and self-advocacy skills.
This year’s Eastern NC Buddy Walk fundraising event will be held on April 10th 2022 from 1:30-5:30 pm at Stokes Family Farm in Greenville, NC. The Buddy Walk draws approximately 1,200 individuals coming together to promote awareness and acceptance of those with Down syndrome.
