A Buddy Walk will be held at 11 a.m. today at Howard Amon Park in Richland by the Down Syndrome Association of the Mid-Columbia. The walk starts at the fingernail stage.
The walk is planned to raise awareness and encourage inclusion for people with Down syndrome and to raise money for Mid-Columbia and national programs.
Participants will walk a one-mile course, and enjoy music, lunch and activities.
Since 2007, annual Mid-Columbia Buddy Walks have raised $125,000.
