Walk for Down Syndrome Awareness

 June 18, 2022
10:00 – 1:30pm
Mill Lake, Abbotsford (Bevan Ave.)

Extra Parking Available at Godson Elementary across the street and at MSA Arena on Emerson Street.

Due to the pandemic, we haven't been able to have our annual Walk for 
Down Syndrome Awareness in June for the last couple of years.

Although the day itself will look different from previous years, we are 
very excited to be bringing back this popular family fundraising event!

To take part in the activities, have ALL walkers sign in between 10:00-11:30am to receive their handstamps.

supporting people with Down syndrome by coming together as a community in Abbotsford at the June Walk for Down syndrome Awareness

Our Walk for Awareness:

  • is a fun-filled day spent, rain or shine, with family and friends
  • promotes awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome
  • raises funds to support families with children with Down syndrome in the Fraser Valley through the programs the FVDSS provides.

      FVDSS programs include:

  • New Parent Program
  • Guest Speakers
  • Playgroup
  • Gross Motor Programs
  • Fine Motor Programs
  • Music Therapy
  • Lending Library
  • Community Awareness
  • Social and Emotional events

These programs, benefiting families in the Fraser Valley who have a family member with Down syndrome, are made possible by the generous donations the FVDSS receives through such fundraising efforts as this annual Walk for Awareness.  

This past fall we saw the opening of our new Down Syndrome Centre in Abbotsford! It is our hope that this Centre will bring together many families, and be a welcoming place for our children to gather together to learn, exercise, play and make friends for many years to come!
