This September there will be a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder awareness walk here in The Pas.
The walk will take place on September 9th and it will begin at 10:30 in the morning at The Pas Friendship Centre.
FASD is caused by woman drinking alcohol during pregnancy and according to the Public Health Agency of Canada it is estimated that 9 in every 1000 babies are born with the disorder every year.
The Centre of Addiction and Mental Health advises woman that drank alcohol before they found out they were pregnant to contact a mental health provider.
