The Down Syndrome Association of Houston welcomes you, your friends and family to join us at Houston's largest advocacy event for Down syndrome!  Nationally, the Buddy Walk®  is the most widely recognized public awareness event for the Down syndrome community.  Locally, over the past 17 years, the DSAH has held a family-friendly event open to all children and adults with Down syndrome, their families, friends and thousands of local supporters.

As a direct result of event sponsorships, team fundraising and generous public donations, the DSAH is able to continue providing programs for all age groups, including:

  • New Baby Gift Baskets
  • New Parent Packets
  • Educational resources
  • Smart Start for new students beginning school
  • Education for Life
  • Community Groups 
  • Conferences 

Start today by becoming a team captain and registering a team. Start fundraising for our cause or make a donation. Join the celebration on Saturday, November 11 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. It will be a fun day filled with entertainment, music, rides, food, and vendors but most importantly, meet new friends with Down syndrome.
