About Us


Established 2014

The Intelligent, Ambitious, No Limits (I.A.N.) Buddy Walk® is a family support, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Its mission is to provide resources, activities, and education to the families, communities, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

How It Works

The all-volunteer organization was organized in July 2014 by a single parent of a 10 year-old child with Down syndrome. If you would like to volunteer to help with our mission or have any questions about Down syndrome, our website hosts all information on activities and events that we will offer. All funds are received via donations and fundraisers.
