The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 Walks to more than 400 Walks each year. Last year, more than 400,000 people from across the country participated in their local Buddy Walk®.

Last year all the Buddy Walks combined raised nearly $18 million to benefit local programs and services, as well as national public policy and public awareness initiatives.
