Every October the Panhandle Down Syndrome Guild has a fun event every year called the Buddy Walk. I have attended it several times. It really is a lot of fun so the thoughts of how to top that during this age of social distancing was a task. They crushed it.

Instead of the Buddy Walk this year how about a city wide scavenger hunt? Those are a lot of fun anyway. It's called The Amazing Buddy Race. There will be tons of locations for you and your team to visit on your way to winning.

Bonus opportunities to win will be earned by promoting accomplishments via social media during the event. The participants have to stay focused because time is limited. All sponsors are encouraged to volunteer to be an event location for additional exposure, but this is optional. We think it would be a great way to promote you and all of your commitment to
