World Down Syndrome Day
Sunday, March 21st, 2-4PM
Texas Live, Arlington
March 21st is internationally recognized as World Down Syndrome Day. Just like typical people, individuals with Down syndrome have two copies of each of their 23 chromosomes but they have a third copy of chromosome 21, a genetic condition known as trisomy 21, hence the celebration on March 21st or 3-21.
In 2023, we will celebrate together on Sunday, March 19th at the Backyard at Texas Live in Arlington. The event will include music, performances, and our Down Syndrome Advocacy Awards.
We will also continue our Read for Inclusion program. This program brings DSPNT staff and parent volunteers into schools to read a book about Down syndrome in classrooms all over North Texas. After we read the book it is donated to the school.
