RIT hosts 2018 Buddy Walk

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Hundreds participated in the Flower City Down Syndrome Network's Buddy Walk on Saturday at Rochester Institute of Technology.

The walk encouraged participants to accept and include those with down syndrome. It was a fun-filled day packed with tons of carnival games, bounce houses, raffles, and food.

All funds raised through the National Buddy Walk Program support both local and national programs.

“This is our chance to show the world the amazing accomplishments of individuals with Down syndrome – people with Down syndrome are living longer, healthier and productive lives, attending post-secondary education programs, getting married, obtaining gainful employment, and are more integrated into the fabric of society than ever before," said NDSS President, Sara Hart Weir.
