2015 Billboard



From November 1 to 7, Canadians across the country will be celebrating the 45,000 people with Down syndrome in Canada for National Down Syndrome Awareness Week (NDSAW).

Representing the campaign this year is Pip McCallan from Kingston, Ontario. She will appear on the 2014-2015 CDSS billboard with her brother, Noal and her mother, Tara, the popular blogger behind Happy Soul Project. Pip was named a Canadian Down Syndrome Hero earlier this year.

This year’s message reflects a sentiment shared by many parents of people with Down syndrome: “She teaches us to paint outside the lines.”

During National Down Syndrome Awareness Week, the NDSAW website (www.cdss.ca/ndsaw) will share a new story each day featuring parents who truly “See the Ability” in their children with Down syndrome.

For more information about National Down Syndrome Awareness Week please visit www.cdss.ca/ndsaw or www.facebook.com/cdndownsyndrome.
