 To raise awareness and support for the needs of those living with the effects of FASD, The Grey Bruce FASD Leadership Team has organized a full-day workshop to be hosted at the Grey Bruce Health Unit (101 17th St E) in Owen Sound.

Members attending the workshop will be walking nine blocks from 12:15-12:45 to show support.
