Aim Higher at the 27th annual Capital Region Buddy Walk!

September 24, 2023



Join us in promoting inclusion and awareness for the achievements of individuals with Down syndrome as we celebrate the Capital Region Buddy Walk's 27th Anniversary!

The Buddy Walk is a short 1-mile stroll around the pond in Schenectady’s Central Park.  Along with the walk, the day is filled with resource information, entertainment, music, games, crafts, and snacks and drinks.

Your donations make a difference. 

Funds raised at the Buddy Walk have a direct impact on individuals with Down syndrome and their families in our communities in any stage of life. Here are just a few highlights of the accomplishments of the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center from the past year:

  • 80 Parent Education, Linkage, Outreach & Referral Consultations

  • 70 Professional Education, Linkage, Outreach & Referral Consultations

  • 120 Modified Curricular Units to Capital Region school districts to support inclusion of students with Down syndrome in general education classes

  • Education, Enrichment & Empowerment to 20 young adults and adults through DSAHRC’s 321 Club

  • In-person visits and ongoing support to Expectant and New Parents at Capital Region hospitals through DSAHRC’s Welcome Baby Program

  • Publish periodic DSAHRC E-newsletter to over 1,400 subscribers

Let's Aim Higher Together!
