Additional Information

Forming teams

Teams are formed in an effort to raise funds for children with trisomy 21. It is a way for friends and families to show their support for a child in their community, and rally around an important cause.

Visit the CHOP Buddy Walk registration page, then select a participation type — adult or child. You will then be asked to select a role. Select “Create a Team” or “Join a Team” to get started.

If I had a team last year, do I have to start over again?

Yes. Captains should visit the CHOP Buddy Walk registration page. As a captain, you can use the same team name as last year and register for the event.

Team member registration

Team members can register through the CHOP Buddy Walk registration page.

Individual registration

To register as an individual, go to the CHOP Buddy Walk registration page.
