The Buddy Walk, established by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995, takes place every October. According to this organization, “Down syndrome is the most commonly occurring chromosomal condition. One in every 691 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome. There are more than 400,000 people living with Down syndrome in the United States.”
