EVENT DETAILS

Thank you to the hundreds of walkers, families and donors who joined us Sunday, Oct. 1, at Villanova University Stadium. With your help, we raised more than $210,000 (and counting) to fund breakthrough patient care and research to help children with Down syndrome who are treated at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

“Your support of the CHOP Buddy Walk helps the Trisomy 21 Program achieve our goal of promoting optimal health, growth and development to individuals with Down syndrome – from infancy through adulthood. By involving your family and friends, you are spreading awareness that children with Down syndrome can reach their potential and become valued members of their communities well into the future.”

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