Fox 25 news anchor and Lynnfield native Heather Hegedus is set to return as emcee of this year’s Buddy Walk to benefit the National Down Syndrome Society. 

The 17th annual Buddy Walk and Family Festival is next Sunday, October 13th at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield.

Entertainment at this year’s event will include performances by Ayla Brown, the Boston Ballet Adaptive Dance Program, children’s musician Mr. Vic, and record-breaking jumping dog Yeager. The Adaptive Class at Beyond Self Defense in Wakefield will also provide a self-defense demonstration.

October is National Down’s Syndome Awareness Month. To register or to make a donation, click here.

Hegedus and her colleagues also stopped in Lynnfield last summer for a Fox 25 Zip Trip segment. Click here to read more about it, or click here to see a photo gallery from that morning
