The Buddy Walk brings together all families with the goal of raising awareness and inclusion for those with Down syndrome. 

Over the past 14 years, this event has grown significantly thanks to the community. It has allowed the Wyckoff Family YMCA to continue its commitment to expand special needs programming as well as to continue to raise awareness of Down syndrome and all other special needs.  

The Wyckoff Family YMCA will hold its 15th Buddy Walk on October 5, 2019. We hope that you will join us for this inspiring event and incredibly special day!
