Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, as well as the increased infection rates of the new variants, in the Acadiana area and throughout Louisiana, the Board has made the decision to host our 17th Annual Buddy Walk® as a VIRTUAL event this year.  We are confident that this is the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. Buddy Walk® is a wonderful day for our members, their families and friends of all ages to celebrate their loved ones with Down syndrome. The safety and health of our community and members is a top priority. We have an obligation to our most vulnerable members to ensure a safe environment for everyone to enjoy as well as maintain a safe work environment for our generous sponsors and volunteers.  Thank you for your understanding and support of our decision and our organization.

Buddy Walk® may be different this year but our mission is not. Join DSAA as we unite for a common cause to raise funds at the 17th Annual Virtual Buddy Walk.  Teams will have 21 days (signifying the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome) to WALK YOUR WAY with family and friends in neighborhoods, local parks or wherever you choose from October 10th – October 31st. You and your family never ever walk alone! Even from a distance we can make a difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome, their families and our communities!
