Welcome to the CDSS Walk for Awareness 2022

From June 11 – 19, you can walk ‘where and when you want’  to raise awareness for Down syndrome within Canadian communities! We suggest that people walk a total of 5 kilometres over the time period, to stay fit, connect with others, and share on social media their walk progress.

The walk is a virtual event - you can walk as an individual, as a small group, or as a large community.

Check out the 2022 team and individual pages to read why people are supporting the walk and who they walk for.

Thank you for helping #SeeTheAbility, and for supporting Canadians with Down syndrome.
