7th Annual Down syndrome Outreach Buddy Walk!

The Arc's 7th Annual Down syndrome Outreach Buddy Walk is taking place in Fairhaven this October 2nd! Featuring food, games, music and more, the Buddy Walk has been promoting acceptance and awareness of people with Down syndrome since 1995. Buddy Walks are held across the country, from Bellingham to Washington, DC. This year's walk begins at the Fairhaven Village Green and winds through downtown Fairhaven. Events, including music by DJ Ryan Dodge, begin at 11 am and continue until 2.

Down syndrome Outreach is an entirely volunteer program. The Buddy Walk is their largest event of the year. They are looking for additional volunteers to help prepare for the event, both in the next several weeks and on the day of the Walk. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact Makenna Padgett at The Arc of Whatcom County by calling (360) 715-0170 x205 or by emailing
