March 21 – World Down Syndrome Day

Brother Knights,
March 21st – On this day, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organize and participate in activities and events to raise awareness. Together we create a single global voice advocating for the rights, inclusion, and well-being of people with Down syndrome.

Why Lots of Socks? Remember chromosomes which some say look a little bit like pairs of socks. Sometimes people have an extra ‘sock’ or chromosome and a person with Down syndrome has an extra copy of chromosome 21 so go ahead and mix and match your socks today! Let’s pay tribute to these angels that live among us. They are heroes in our communities. We must all stand to protect, support and assist the vulnerable that bring so much joy and happiness to our communities.
