Since 2001, WRDSS has organized an annual walk for Down syndrome that takes place the Sunday of Down Syndrome Awareness week each November. Previously called the Buddy Walk, the GO21 Walk is a fundraising event where the community can come together and celebrate the many abilities of those living with Down syndrome. What began as a small family walk to spread awareness and inclusion of Down syndrome in the community has become one of Waterloo Regions go-to Events with hundreds of family and friends joining in. With participation of representatives from all levels of government, community supporters, pre and post walk activities, entertainment for the children and local media coverage, it continues to grow each and every year.
