DATE CHANGE! 10th Annual Champlain Valley Buddy Walk

The 10th Annual Champlain Valley Buddy Walk will take place at Burlington’s Battery Park on Sunday, September 29th, 2019 with on-site registration opening at noon and the walk commencing at 1:00 PM. More than 200 people are expected to attend the event, which is one of 250 Walks across the country this fall to raise awareness and funds for programs that benefit people with Down syndrome and their families.

Online registration for the event is open from 9/1/2019 until noon on 9/28/2019 (a link is provided below for online registration). All participants ages 10 years and older must register for the event and the online cost is $8 per person, with the maximum registration cost of $30 for a family.

On-site registration is also available at Battery Park. Costs for same-day registration increase to $10 / person (with the same $30 cap per family). Those wishing to register on-site are asked to bring cash or a check as we are not able to process credit cards on location.

A waiver must be signed by each participant aged 18 years and older (parents may sign for their children). A limited number of t-shirts are also available for purchase at Battery Park.

This year’s walk is made possible with the generous financial support of Dore & Whittier Architects, People’s United Bank Foundation, CCS Constructors and Little City Speech and Language.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the event coordinator, Tim McQuiston, at [email protected].

We hope to see you there!
