Join the Wisconsin Upside Down as we unite for a common cause and raise funds at the 9th Annual Wisconsin Upside Down Buddy Walk®. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! Help us spread the word; all are welcome for our day of celebration!

The Buddy Walk is the most important fund raiser of the year for Wisconsin Upside Down. Funds raised are used to fulfil our mission to benefit people with Down syndrome and their communities by providing Education, Advocacy, Awareness and Support. We envision a world where people with Down syndrome are accepted and valued as members of the communities in which they live. We believe that those with Down syndrome deserve equal and inclusive education, employment and opportunities to lead fulfilling lives.

The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
