2020 Buddy Walk

November 1 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

A time to celebrate. A time to share.

Join the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee as we unite for a common cause and raise funds at the 2020 Knoxville Buddy Walk®. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! Help us spread the word; all are welcome for our day of celebration!

In order to carefully follow city and state guidelines as it relates to COVID-19, DSAG will be having a Drive-Thru for Down syndrome in place of Buddy Walk. The event will still be at World’s Fair Park on November 1, 2020 from 1-4 pm. Team Captains will drive-thru to pick up shirts. Individuals with Down syndrome who are registered before October 15th, 2020 will receive their shirt, medal and goody bag. The Buddy Walk Committee is determined to make this a fun and exciting day for our families although it may look a little different! Please join us as we celebrate our friends and family with Down syndrome.
