Formerly known as The Buddy Walk, the one mile walk will take place on the grounds of the Vanderburgh 4-H Fairgrounds on October 7th beginning at 9:00 a.m. But the fun won't stop there! After the walk, enjoy food, live entertainment, and activities for the kids, as well as an opportunity for team photos, and information tables for the adults.

This year's goal is to raise $100,000 which will be used by S.M.I.L.E to serve hundreds of families who have a loved one with Down Syndrome right here in the Tri-State.

Registration ends Tuesday, October 3rd and can be done now through the S.M.I.L.E. on Down Syndrome website.
