World Down Syndrome Day: Rock Your Socks
Each year we look forward to March 21st as people everywhere celebrate World Down Syndrome Day by wearing brightly colored, mismatched socks. March 21 is symbolic because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Socks were chosen because the karyotype of Ds chromosomes actually looks like mismatched socks!
More information about this event coming soon!
