Wiregrass Area Virtual Buddy Walk
The 13th Annual Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk® will be held on October 17th, 2020. Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, this year’s walk will be virtual.
A Virtual Walk is an opportunity to walk with your friends and family anywhere, anytime! Even people who can’t normally join in on Buddy Walk® day due to distance can join a Virtual Walk. There will be a Welcome and Kick-off Facebook Live on the morning of October 17th (time to be announced) to get the Virtual Walk started. After that, it is as simple as choosing a time and place to walk and head out to have some fun!
On the day of the walk be sure to:
- Wear your Buddy Walk® shirt
- Take pictures along the way
- Post pictures to social media using #WABW2020 and tag @friendswiregrassarea
- Use the #wheresyourwalk to share a picture and tell us where your walk was held
There will be people walking in neighborhoods and parks all over the nation this year in support and celebration of their loved ones with Down syndrome.
A Virtual Walk is new to us, so we will be continuing to share information throughout this process. Be sure to follow the public F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Facebook page @friendswiregrassarea for updates.
You can make a difference in the lives of thousands of families. Your participation in the Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk helps the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. organization (Families Reaching, Influencing, Educating and Networking for Down Syndrome) provide information and support to families in the Wiregrass Area.
