The Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles (DSALA) receives no funding from the state or federal government and is 100% donor funded. Programs and events of the DSALA are free or low cost to children and adults with Down syndrome and their siblings. Each year, the DSALA must raise $250,000 to provide these vital services and core support. The Buddy Walk is one of our largest fundraising event and is responsible for raising 40% of the funds needed to operate each year. Seven percent of the money raised through the Buddy Walk supports the National Down Syndrome Society who works to ensure members of the Down syndrome community have a voice at the national level. The remaining funds that are raised support our local efforts and cover the cost of the event .
