More than $185,000 Raised!

The 2016 CHOP Buddy Walk and Family Fun Day raised more than $185,000 for the Trisomy 21 Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Your support is truly making a difference in the lives of children with Down syndrome.


2016 CHOP Buddy Walk

Thank you to the more than 2,500 patients, family members, friends and supporters who came out to the 15th annual CHOP Buddy Walk on Sunday, Oct. 2 at Villanova University Stadium.

With your help, we raised more than more than $185,000 for the Trisomy 21 Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia!

Although the 2016 event is over, it’s not too late to continue supporting children with Down syndrome through the CHOP Buddy Walk.

CHOP Buddy Walk began 15 years ago as a way to raise funds, promote acceptance and inclusion of people with trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) and to have a great time.
