We will coordinate the Event on Walk day, October 3rd from 9:00am-12:00pm and post live
video, photos and pre-recorded family stories on our Website and Facebook pages.

We will be offering our
2020 Basket Raffle online leading up to the event. Those who are
interested, can purchase tickets and make their selections online in advance and the winners
will be drawn during the virtual event on the 3rd.

The Walk for Our Buddies has created a
2020 WFOB face covering that will be sold through
our WFOB website. All proceeds from the Face coverings that are sold will go to fund the
2021 Walk for Our Buddies Event.

Walk for Our Buddies will continue to pair with the Sheshequin Path Half Marathon, which will
be held in person, by offering the opportunity to Buddy-up, connecting runners and local
individuals with Down Syndrome. Runners are encouraged to post their run day videos and
photos onto the Walk page and share their experiences with their Buddies.
