Why Walk?

Trisomy 21, also known as Down syndrome, is the most common chromosomal anomaly and often causes significant health problems. By participating in the CHOP Buddy Walk®, you are supporting life-altering care, treatment and research that make it possible for our young patients to experience the joys of childhood.

Why We Walk

“The Trisomy 21 Program has continued to flourish because of both the funds raised and the continued enthusiastic spirit of the families and friends who support our children and adults with Down syndrome each year.”

— Mary Pipan, MD, Director of CHOP’s Trisomy 21 Program
