HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - B.U.D.S. will host its 10th annual Buddy Walk on Saturday, October 6th. The walk will take place at the Jaycees Fairgrounds in Huntsville from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

B.U.D.S. stands for Bringing Up Down Syndrome.  The goal of the Buddy Walk is to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The funds raised at the walk will allow B.U.D.S. to continue with efforts to support and educate families about Down syndrome, and also reach out to the north Alabama community.

The walk will include a "Chinese Auction" of items such as various gift baskets and gift certificates. Tickets for the auction are $1 each, or you can purchase a sheet of 25 tickets for $20. There will be games and a puppet show for kids, music, lunch and much more so stay tuned! The walk and lunch are free, however, donations are greatly appreciated.

There were over 500 participants at the walk last year, and B.U.D.S. is hoping for an even bigger crowd this year. So mark your calendars and please spread the word to support B.U.D.S. and all of the families touched by Down syndrome.
