Our message:

Help us make a difference!

For the fifth year in a row, we are participating in Toronto's annual Buddy Walk to help raise awareness for Down syndrome in our community as well as raise funds for The Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT).

Despite the challenges that we have all faced in the past year, and the additional challenges faced by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, DSAT has stepped up its programing to make sure that individuals and families still have access to valuable supports and programs.

Please help us again support this great organization. Just click "Sponsor Us" to make a donation.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to help raise public awareness and raise funds to support the programs and services provided to children and adults with Down syndrome.

Christina, Tommy, Stella, and Leonardo.

[edit]

The Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT) is a non-profit registered charitable organization established in 1987, consisting of passionate volunteer parents, siblings, friends and citizens who are devoted to improving the potential of people with Down syndrome. DSAT is a proud leader for raising awareness, equality and opportunity for people with Down syndrome. Funds raised support numerous programs, social events, and educational seminars, for people with Down syndrome and their families.


Every Dollar Counts!


DSAT receives no government funding and relies on private donations to provide programming for our community. Most of the money raised remains with DSAT and 7% of the funds support the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) and their efforts for advocacy for people with Down syndrome.
