Lots of Socks for World Down Syndrome Day 2019
Time & Location
About the Event
We have contacted all schools in Cavan, Louth, Meath and Monaghan inviting them to take part in this special event for World Down Syndrome Day. And the response has been amazing and we now also have lots of pre-schools and businesses also joining in.
The 21st March was selected as World Down Syndrome Day due to the fact that people with Down Syndrome have a third copy (third month is March) of the 21st Chromosome.
On World Down Syndrome day people are invited to wear “lots of socks”……. The funkier and more colorful the better! The” lots of socks” campaign represents the extra chromosome that people with Down Syndrome have and is internationally recognised to raise awareness about Down Syndrome.
There's still time to sign up and we would be delighted if you are willing to take part in this campaign. Whether it is simply to raise awareness or if you would like to use it as a way to raise funds for the centre, we would be thrilled to have your support. We can provide posters and leaflets to help you promote this. We'd love for as many of you to get involved as possible! Email Caitriona via firstname.lastname@example.org
