Join us for the 2015 Buddy Walk
This year’s DSNO Buddy Walk will be Sunday, September 27th at Millennium Plaza Park in Lake Oswego. A fun day is being planned including entertainment, activities, resources and lunch.
This event celebrates and brings further awareness to our loved ones with Down Syndrome. It is our only fundraiser and enables us to provide the services and support that we offer our families.
In addition to registering for the Walk, many of our members have created Buddy Pages. It is a great way to learn more about our children and support a team.
This can be done with your Buddy Walk registration or without if you are not able to attend this year. Please visit our Buddy Pages link for more information.
We also have a variety of Sponsorship levels.

An Important Research Project
The Global Down Syndrome Foundation wishes to gather information in order to open their first Adult Down Syndrome Medical Center, which will be located in Colorado. It will be the first of its kind within a 600-mile radius of Denver.
Global has created a Task Force made up of many renowned medical professionals, activists, and self-advocates from across the country to help them establish this world-class medical center for adults with Down syndrome. Part of the Task Force’s recommendation is to get input from self-advocates and their families. To this end, Global has engaged Catalyst Healthcare Research to conduct a survey regarding the healthcare needs of adults with Down syndrome.Read More
