The 2018 Anchored Down with Love Buddy Walk will be held on Saturday, October 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Wee Care Park (552 Walton Rd., Defuniak Springs).  This is the 6th annual event, and proceeds go directly to our local Down Syndrome community.  The event is sponsored by Walton High's Anchor Club.  Activities are free and open to the public.

The event will begin at 9:00 a.m.  At approximately 11:00, children and adults with Down Syndrome, along with their families, friends, and supporters, will take part in the one-mile advocacy walk demonstrating their support of the acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down Syndrome.  Starting or joining a Buddy Walk team is a great way to show your support.

Students may volunteer to obtain community service hours, and businesses may contribute to the silent auction.
