We invite you to attend this important community awareness event to promote FASD awareness in the Atlanta area. The event will begin PROMPTLY at 11 AM with a bell ringing ceremony for our children, followed by a guest speaker. We are planning a day full of family activities to include a cook out, kick ball, and finally a "Walk With Me" walk around Hammond Park because our children and all individuals with FASD will need someone to walk with them the rest of their lives. We will also have a table set up to provide FASD information to the public. Please make posters, banners or anything that you wish to use for our walk. Together we can help bring awareness to FASD.
