Forming Teams
When you form a Buddy Walk® team, you build energy and passion around your shared cause: raising funds for CHOP’s Trisomy 21 Program. It’s a way for friends and family to show support for an individual in their community and make a real difference in the lives of children, teens and adults with Down syndrome.

Getting started
Visit the CHOP Buddy Walk® registration page, then select a “Create 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. You can use the same team name as last year to register for the event. If you do not remember your registration information please contact buddywalk@email.chop.edu.

Team member registration
Invite team members to register through your participant center or have them go to the CHOP Buddy Walk® registration page and tell them to register under your team name.
