Walk With Friends to be held on September 29th, 2018

Our Annual Walk With Friends (Fall theme!) is coming up on September 29th, 1:00-3:30 pm, at Victoria Park in Halifax (rain date September 30). This years’ event will be presented as a Fall Fair with something fun to offer the entire family. Feel free to dress in your favourite fall fashion, a straw hat, plaid shirt or simply in beautiful Fall colours.

To help support our cause please sign up on our CanadaHelps fundraising event: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/hnsdss/p2p/walkwithfriends2018/

We are also looking for volunteers to help with the event, and for contributions to our Bake Sale takes place alongside Walk With Friends. We are trying to promote healthy eating this year so if you can try and keep that in mind for any healthier substitutions that can be made (ie. adding applesauce, using fruit, etc). If you are able to volunteer or to bring something please comment on the Halifax NS Down Syndrome Society Facebook  group (and if you’re not a member of the group, please join!).

Again this year we will walk proudly as one large group down Spring Garden Road. Let’s promote this event to the fullest- bring along family, friends, co-workers etc.as we join to celebrate Down Syndrome and to raise funds for the HNSDSS. This organization provides great opportunities for people with Down Syndrome and their families by offering numerous programs for all age groups to participate in, hosting special events throughout the year and most of all helping to support people with Down Syndrome.
