Our Story 

Down Syndrome Network Oregon began in 2002 by two women whose children were born with Down syndrome. It began as a small group of parents getting together to share their experiences over coffee. It did not take long to realize the value of a support network of parents and care givers who are raising a child living with Down syndrome or other challenges.

Nearly 20 years later, DSNO is a leading local resource for Down Syndrome support and offers a range of community-based programs to build an outstanding support organization for families, friends and individuals with Down syndrome.

This will be our first of its kind virtual Buddy Walk® and we appreciate your participation. If you have been a Buddy Walk® sponsor, thank you for your past contribution and participation. We do hope you will support us again for our 18th​ annual Buddy Walk®.

If you are a new potential Buddy Walk® sponsor, thank you for considering supporting our organization. Our mission is to provide comfort and acceptance for families, friends and individuals with Down syndrome and other disabilities. It is our goal to use community outreach events to create a vision of hope and awareness to demonstrate that every life brings value to the world.

The Buddy Walk® will be a virtual event this year, and we will be holding spotlight days for our sponsors through our online platforms throughout the summer months. We are planning a fun virtual event including entertainment, resources and more.
