How Your Support Makes An Impact

All of the net proceeds from the 2021 Buddy Walk will go directly back to the critical programs operated by the Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville. DSAJ is the only agency in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia that assists families of those with Down syndrome from prenatal diagnosis, early intervention, the school-aged years, and throughout adulthood. The association now has more than 1,500 individuals, families and community members who call the DSAJ family. 

Our programs range from providing new parents with support and funded therapies to organizing social/fitness groups and life skills workshops. We also operate a Career Solutions Academy that connects adults with Down syndrome to job training and placement so that they can pursue their career aspirations.
