What is World Down Syndrome Day you ask?

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) , 21 March, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. For additional information head to their website, World Down Syndrome Day.

 

Why we should all celebrate World Down syndrome day you ask?

World Down Syndrome Day helps educate the public on what Down Syndrome is and how to encourage those with Down Syndrome to participate in daily activities so they can live a full life and play a vital role in their community. The accomplishments and contributions of people with Down Syndrome are often overlooked.
