The Triangle Buddy Walk is a celebration promoting acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Triangle Buddy Walk funds the work of the Triangle Down Syndrome Network. As a grassroots nonprofit, we rely on the support of our local community. Reaching our goal of $120,000 is vital as the Buddy Walk is our primary source of funding.
