This year will be the first time this event will be held on Grand Bahama, and organisers are seeking support from the Grand Bahama community to ensure its success. It is our sincere hope that you will encourage your colleagues, family and friends to participate in this worthwhile event.

Proceeds raised from this event will be used in two ways. Firstly, to launch a Grand Bahama Chapter of the Bahamas Down Syndrome Society and, secondly, to  make a contribution to the Bahamas Down Syndrome Society National Public Awareness campaign.

The walk will begin in the parking lot of the Grand Bahama Port Authority, travel north on the mall, around the roundabout in front of the courthouse and return to the parking lot of the Grand Bahama Port Authority.
