We are excited to announce that the 11th Annual Champlain Valley Buddy Walk will take place at Burlington’s Battery Park on Sunday, September 26, 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.

This year’s walk will begin and end in Battery Park, and will trace an approximately 1-mile loop through adjacent Waterfront Park. Ben & Jerry's for all when we're done!

Online registration for the event opens on 8/13/2021 and ends at noon on 9/25/2021. 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.  The link for registering online is provided below.

On-site registration is also available at Battery Park. Costs for same-day registration increase to $10 per 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 for $10 each at Battery Park.

Those who are unable to participate in this event but would like to make a donation to the Champlain Valley Down Syndrome Group, can either do so through the EventBrite event link HERE, or by using the “DONATE” button on the CVDSG homepage. 

This year’s walk is made possible with the generous financial support of Dore & Whittier Architects, People’s United Bank Foundation and Otter Creek Engineering. We hope to see you there!
