The Smile-A-Mile Buddy Walk is
an annual event put on by Marion County Services for the Developmentally Disabled and The National Down Syndrome Society to help raise community awareness for Down syndrome and other developmentally disabilities in Marion County.
Each June, Nipper Park in down town Hannibal hosts crowds of families, care providers, and developmentally disabled individuals, as well as different area businesses, press, and local organizations, too.
Every cent raised goes to benefit MCSDD and NDSS's continuing efforts to help increase choice, respect, ability, and involvement for developmentally disabled. To learn more about the National Down Syndrome Society and The Smile-A-Mile Buddy Walk, visit their websites:
