Thank you for joining us at the 21st Annual CHOP Buddy Walk® & Family Fun Day on Sunday, Oct. 9, 2022! This year’s record-breaking celebration was held at Lincoln Financial Field – home of the Superbowl winning Philadelphia Eagles!

The day was filled with fun activities for the entire family, including moon bounces, carnival games, character appearances, food, entertainment and a silent auction. More than 3,000 family members and friends came together for this festive event that celebrates all individuals with Down syndrome.

It was a triumphant return to in-person event after two years of virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic – and raised more than $305,000 for the Trisomy 21 Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia!
