UL Life – Buddy Walk

The Buddy Walk is an annual fundraiser held by the Down Syndrome Association of Acadiana. This year the walk was held virtually due to COVID-19 concerns.

Beacon Club, the Pre-Professional Society, and the UL LIFE Program chose to partner up in making a team to complete the walk together to support the DSAA, a non-profit that all three university organizations feel aligns with their missions. The team of over 25 participants completed the walk together and raised a total of $1,366!

The event was organized by Mrs. Jill Green with the Down Syndrome Association of Acadiana. Miss Caroline Mire, Vice-President of Beacon Club, secretary of the Pre-Professional Society, and a UL LIFE mentor was the organizer and coordinator for the team on campus.
