GO21 Walk


The WWDSS GO21 Any Which Way You Can A-Thon will take place on Sunday, September 27th, 2020!

Join us September 27th at 4PM for our Virtual Event on  youtube-logo3.jpg

For the last 18 years, we have hit the pavement together to raise funds for WWDSS. Now in our 19th year, we will have to do things a little differently, but the goal to support those with Down syndrome in the community and their families remains the same.


Your Neighbourhood, your way!

On September 27th, 2020, join hundreds of people near and far as they participate in the WRDSS GO21 Any Which Way You Can A-Thon, all at the same time, for a duration of 21 minutes.


It may be doing laps in the backyard, a run around the neighborhood, a bike ride on the street, or skipping around home! Do something active while staying safe, all while raising money for a great cause.


Register as an individual or as a team, determine your fundraising goal, and start fundraising!  Invite family and friends, (wherever they might live!) to join your fundraising team. 95% of the funds raised will go to support WRDSS programs and events for people with Down syndrome and their families and the remaining 5% will be provided to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society.
