Come celebrate the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome at the 16th Annual Toledo Buddy Walk! 

Here are some highlights:

-Individuals of all ages with Down syndrome get a FREE registration with a shirt!
-Any teams that secure event sponsors of $100 or above are able to count those amounts toward their team fundraising total
-And MUCH more surprises to come!

How can you get involved? It's easy:
