**The 2019 Tulsa Buddy Walk is ON – rain or shine! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for our 17th annual event at Holland Hall, 1:30 – 4:00 p.m. Grab those umbrellas, wear your rain boots, pack a poncho (and maybe an extra set of clothes for the kids) and bring a pop-up tent if you want to.
We have ordered two extra big tents for all of our exhibitors to host their carnival games. We’ll still have food from Oklahoma Joe's BBQ and Catering, shaved ice from Harper's Hut Shaved Ice & Java, donuts from QuikTrip, cookies from Merritt's Bakery and a whole lot of fun.

We don’t melt, and life always has a plan B. See you there!**

THE BUDDY WALK

The Buddy Walk is a multi-city advocacy event in which individuals with Down syndrome invite "buddies" to walk with them.  Buddies can include family, friends, teachers, co-workers and even your local politicians. This family friendly event is designed to raise awareness and funds to continue to support programming for the Down Syndrome Association of Tulsa. 90% of all funds raised stay at the local level. Funds raised allow us advocate for individuals with Down syndrome as well as provide families and the community with educational materials and other necessary resources. 

The Tulsa Buddy Walk will include 1/4 mile walk, entertainment, prize giveaways, free BBQ from Oklahoma Joe's, and activities for the whole family.
