On March 21, we observe a global awareness day which has been officially declared by the United Nations. 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
How do we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day?
MDSS celebrates it by having breakfast with Manitoba families on the Sunday closest to March 21. You can visit our 2023 event page for details here – Pancake Breakfast Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day! | MDSS (manitobadownsyndromesociety.com)
Manitoba families also contribute to #LotsOfSocks campaign to raise awareness of Down syndrome by wearing colorful crazy socks that day everywhere, taking picture and posting on our Social Media.
This year MDSS have their own socks, you can order here – Support Manitoba Down Syndrome Society Sock Campaign (sockbox.ca)
