2021 Wyoming Buddy Walk® in Laramie



Laramie – The 21st Annual Wyoming Buddy Walk® will take place on Saturday, September 18th in Laramie, WY at the Washington Park band shell. Join the Wyoming Down Syndrome Association as we unite for a common cause at the 2021 Wyoming Buddy Walk®! Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! All are welcome for our day of celebration!


The purpose of the Wyoming Buddy Walk® is to celebrate the lives of people with Down syndrome and raise awareness about Down syndrome in Wyoming. The annual Wyoming Buddy Walk® also raises money to provide support for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. The Wyoming Down Syndrome Association, in conjunction with Ark Regional Services, organizes the event.


The 2021 Wyoming Buddy Walk® will begin at 9 am and we will have a variety of carnival games, carnival snacks, and live music from the 6 Million Dollar Band. 6MDB specializes in performing high energy 80s new wave dance hits exactly as the original artists with the correct sounds and musical style that made the songs unique. At 10:30 am we will have our recognition ceremony and walk. We return to the band shell where we will enjoy a lunch and a few more great 80’s tunes.  The event will conclude at 12 pm, which will provide enough time for people attending the football game to make their way to Tailgate Park to enjoy the UW festivities.


The Wyoming Buddy Walk® is excited to continue our relationship with UW Football.  Through the generosity of UW Athletics, we are able to provide anyone who registers for the Wyoming Buddy Walk® the opportunity to purchase a football ticket for the discounted price of $15 a ticket! You will have the opportunity to purchase one ticket for each registered walker. If you are not able to attend the football game, you will be able to register for the Wyoming Buddy Walk® without being required to purchase the game ticket.


Pre-registration is strongly recommended. Pre-registering by September 3rd guarantees a t-shirt of the correct size, a football ticket, and helps registration move more quickly. We encourage you to take advantage of the pre-registration cost of $15 for adults (18 and up) and $5 for youth (17 and under). Registration after September 3rd is $20 for adults (18 and up) and $10 for youth (17 and under).


You can register online after July 1st 2021. Registration is also available on the day of the walk. For more information, please contact Ruby Seidl by phone, 307-742-6641; by email, outreach@arkrs.org; or visit www.wydsa.org.
