20th annual Buddy Walk takes place this Saturday

This Saturday, the 20th annual Buddy Walk is taking place at Bowling Green Ball Park. Celebrating individuals with Down Syndrome, the Buddy Walk is hosted every year by Down Syndrome of South-Central Kentucky.

Organizers say they’ve grown over the two decades from just 80 attendees to over 2,000.

Gates open at 9:00 am Saturday and registration is free. You can join a team, start a team, or choose to walk solo.

The goal this year is to raise 75-thousands-dollars and so far they’ve raised just over 10-thousand.

Organizers stress, not only does each dollar count, but you will walk away from the Buddy Walk feeling like a new person.
