Rock your Socks for World Down Syndrome Day
On March 21, Pacekids will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) by Rocking our Socks! 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.
We decided to celebrate this special day by wearing our most colourful, fun and crazy socks in celebration of people with Down Syndrome and the many ways that they can brighten up our world!
When you wear your ‘crazy’ or ‘wild’ socks, they aren’t meant to be hidden. Instead they are intended to start conversation and raise awareness!
Down Syndrome can affect how a person looks, speaks and learns. We want to break the stigma around Down Syndrome and show that people with Down Syndrome are more like you than they are different!
On March 21, take pictures of your friends and family wearing their crazy socks. Then share those pictures on social media and tag us! World Down Syndrome Day allows us all to be a part of facilitating inclusion and raising awareness, something we strive to do everyday at Pacekids.
Join us and Rock your Socks for Down Syndrome!
