September 9th is International Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day.

We are encouraging everyone to wear RED shoes or dress in RED to support awareness of FASD.

In 2013, RJ Formanek, an adult with FASD, decided to wear RED SHOES to stand out, be noticed and build awareness by using the shoes to start the FASD conversation with strangers. To him, it was all about: Turning invisibility into visibility, creating conversation and changing stigma into understanding and acceptance. We now use red shoes to build awareness & momentum to celebrate FASD Day.
This year, our Keystone FASD Coordinators, are hosting a virtual paper walk and a colouring contest. They are asking everyone to share their red shoes (coloured pages or real), or an image of them dressed in red to and use the hashtag #seeFASDGreyBruce.
