2015 CHOP Buddy Walk

Thank you for making the 2015 Buddy Walk® and Family Fun Day a huge success! More than 2,200 people joined us on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015, at Villanova Stadium. We raised more than 200,000 to support the Trisomy 21 Program at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

This year’s event featured a festive atmosphere that including games, athletic activities, moon bounces, arts and crafts, music, mascot appearances and more. It was a joyous celebration of individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

Buddy Walk® began 14 years ago to raise funds, promote acceptance and inclusion of people with trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) and to have a great time. Each year, the event raises thousands of dollars to help the Trisomy 21 Program continue its work: to care for children with the disorder; to educate families, schools and communities; and to continue research.

Thank you for joining us. We hope to see you next year!
