SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The 11th annual Savannah Buddy Walk is coming up soon and the Grand Marshal has just been revealed!

Hollywood producer and Leopold's Ice Cream owner Stratton Leopold will be leading the walk this year in Forsyth Park.

Leopold says he is excited to be able to raise awareness for the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society, the organization that this walk benefits.

"Organizations like this one as well as others, it's such an honor to be part of it. I think the entire community is and should be behind it. So anything I can do to help, I'm just so excited to help,” said Leopold.

The one-mile walk and family festival will take place on the first of October in Forsyth Park starting at 10 a.m.
