Yes, we want to know you’re walking with us and require each walker to virtually sign a waiver of participation.
No, there is no fee to sign up and participate in our annual event. We do encourage you to raise funds for the team you are a member of and to also personally support your team by making a donation.
Every registered participant will receive a FREE T-shirt to wear in the Buddy Walk.
Yes, if your children are participating in the walk, we need to have record of it for shirt distribution, waiver and photo release, crowd control, etc.
If you have all of your team members registered by Nov. 13th, you’ll be able to get your Walk shirts and registration packets at the Grand Marshall’s Meet & Greet on the Thursday night before the Buddy Walk. Otherwise, you’ll be able to get your Walk shirts at the registration tent at the Buddy Walk. More information about the Meet & Greet coming soon.

Buddy Walk® registration/check-in starts at the DSNetwork tent located on University Drive, just west of McAllister Avenue and just east of the ASU pedestrian bridge. The start time will depend on when the ASU Homecoming Football game is (and the television station sets the start time but not until we get a little closer). The parade is always 3 prior to the start of the football game. Some years the parade has been around 11 am, but last year it was at 3 pm. We setup our registration and activities about 1.5 hours before the start of the parade. You’ll be notified by email, DSNetwork website and Facebook page.
Registration includes lunch, donated by Chili’s Grill & Bar–a longtime sponsor of DSNetwork! Enjoy family-friendly activities, including face painting, games, dancing and more. You’ll create lifelong memories form this inspirational day.

Buddy Walk Arizona would not be possible with the help of wonderful volunteers. Many volunteers are needed on the day of the Buddy Walk to ensure a successful, safe and fun event. There are opportunities for individuals and groups of all sizes and ages. You can greet participants, total donations, cheer on walkers, and so much more. More information coming soon on volunteering.
