The Vancouver Island Down Syndrome Society (VIDSS) is hosting a fundraising event at Air force Beach in Comox on June 18, with a little something for everyone.
The event begins at 10 a.m. with a two-kilometre awareness walk fundraiser (funds going to Canadian Down Syndrome Society), followed by all kinds of family-friendly fun at the beach.
Hot dogs will be served, along with beach games, including volleyball, Frisbee, and sandcastle building.
There will be a head-shaving event, with all those funds donated to the VIDSS.
Registration for the walk and donations to the event can be made until June 17.
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Final details will be emailed to all registrants the week prior to the event.
Note to public: As there will be many young children at this event, some of whom are afraid of dogs, organizers are asking people to keep their pets away.
