WOW!!! What an amazing day!!!!
Thanks to you and approximately 7,000 of your closest friends for coming together to celebrate all the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome at our 2016 Houston Buddy Walk!
Your attendance made this event a huge success!! We hope that you and your team had fun, got to visit with friends, got information from our vendors and enjoyed the new venue at the Sam Houston Race Park!
DSAH is very thankful to have members like you that make the Houston Buddy Walk an event to look forward to year after year!!
General consensus was that everyone enjoyed the openness of the event with our vendors inside, rides in a secure area and a stage layout for entertainment. We are reviewing and still looking for feedback on how we can continue to improve the event for you, so please send us your feedback to [email protected] There was lots of time put into planning the event including the walking route. We are looking at what can be done to improve the walking surface on the track in hopes to make it more stroller and wheelchair friendly. You all ROCKED that course!
To all of our sponsors, DSAH Board of Directors, Buddy Walk Committee, staff, vendors, food trucks, DJ’s, entertainment, emcee, volunteers, and everyone who put in all of their efforts – THANK YOU!
We are gathering all of our pictures so we can post on social media. If you would like to share them with DSAH – please tag us!
