Buddy Walk by the Sea

Buddy Walk by the Sea Changes to Every Other Year

Buddy Walk By the Sea is now a bi-annual event that will be held in even numbered years. In odd numbered years, we will hold a Family Gathering for families on the Cape & Islands, and you can join our other two annual Buddy Walks - Buddy Walk & Harvest Fair (Westboro) or Buddy Walk & Family Festival (Wakefield)

The Buddy Walk by the Sea is a morning celebration on beautiful Cape Cod that includes a light breakfast, children's activities, a one-mile pledge walk, family entertainment, networking opportunities with local disability organizations, and a chance to talk to MDSC Self-Advocate Ambassadors. All proceeds benefit vital programs and services the MDSC offers including Parents First Call, Advocates in Motion (AIM), Educators Forum, Annual Conference, and Legislative Advocacy.
