What is a Walk for Awareness?

Our Walk for Awareness promotes awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome and raises money to support families with children with Down syndrome in the Fraser Valley.

It is a fun-filled day spent, rain or shine, at Mill Lake in Abbotsford with family and friends. Organize a Team of buddies for your child with Down syndrome to show support.

Enjoy the activities, take a team picture, and bring your team spirit on the 2.2km walk around beautiful Mill Lake!

Our Walk for Awareness is the FVDSS’ most popular fundraiser. Due to your fundraising efforts, we have raised monies to support the group’s activities, such as our:

New Parent Program
Guest Speakers
Gross Motor Program
Fine Motor Program
Social  & Emotional Program
Lending Library
Music Therapy
Family Events


Family, friends, volunteers gather to show support for people with Down syndrome.

Thank you to all who helped make this year’s event on April 29 a huge success!
