Walk For Down Syndrome Awareness 2023

Banner for Down Syndrome Awareness

Our Walk For Down Syndrome Awareness is an annual family event that brings together families and friends to raise awareness of people with Down syndrome to the community and to spread the message that individuals with Down syndrome possess a wide range of abilities and are valuable, contributing members in our community.  

The Fraser Valley Down Syndrome Society is a parent-run local Down syndrome support group based in Abbotsford serving the communities from Langley to Hope. 

Join our online fundraising campaign as we unite for a common cause and raise funds to assist the FVDSS in fulfilling its goals of providing resources and programs to help support the development of people with Down syndrome in the Fraser Valley. Whether you have a family member with Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! Help us spread the word; all are welcome for our day of celebration!

We encourage you to help raise funds so that these, and other, programs may
continue for people with Down syndrome living in the Fraser Valley.

Prizes will be awarded for those collecting and submitting
over $1500, $3000 and $6000 by midnight of April 15.

Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $20.
