The Buddy Walk® (www.buddywalk.org) was established by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to help celebrate Down syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. In 2010 YES Kids brought the first Buddy Walk to Billings. The Walk is the primary source of donated funds that are used to help local families.
The 2014 Billings Buddy Walk will be at Zoo Montana on Saturday October 4th. Registration begins at 10AM and the WALK starts at 11AM. There will be food and fun activities for the kids and adults. Our goal is to walk one mile together to raise awareness and meet others who's lives have been changed by someone "Xtra Special".
The cost to register is $12 per person and includes a Buddy Walk T-shirt. There is no cost for "Xtra Special" individuals to register and they will receive a free T-shirt. Please register by September 1st in order to get your customized t-shirt ordered. Registrations received after September 10th may not receive a T-shirt.
PLEASE JOIN US AS A WALKER OR SPONSOR!

You can register as an INDIVIDUAL or TEAM. You can also raise funds individually or as team to support the Buddy Walk and YESKIDS. 93% of the funds received will go to support families locally through YESKIDS. The other 7% will go to the National Buddy Walk Program and the National Down Syndrome Society.
We are looking for help with a variety of things related to the Buddy Walk, if you are able to volunteer some of your time and energy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and consideration as we look forwad to participating in the Billings Buddy Walk. We understand that not everyone that we are reaching out to will be able to make it to the Walk or raise support.
