World Down Syndrome Day is Fast Approaching!




World Down Syndrome Day is Fast Approaching!

World Down Syndrome Day is fast approaching! WDSD, observed annually on March 21st, is a global day to raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities. Together with the rest of the world we celebrate and bring awareness to those individuales in our life with Down syndrome. Below are some great ideas on how YOU can celebrate with us:

Dance On 3/21
What’s the best way to break up your day? Get up and dance! We want to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and get Canadians moving! Join the Canadian Down Syndrome Society on Monday, March 21, 2017 and have a dance party – Dance On 3/21! Show Canadians and the rest of the world YOUR inclusive workforce, school, or class. Show Canadians your supportive family, friends, or community. Show everyone that YOU #SeeTheAbility!

Sometime during the day, stop what you’re doing and have a quick dance with your class, your school, or your work. It can be any length – a minute, 3 minutes and 21 seconds, or an hour! Film it on your phone and email it to us, tweet it to us or post it on our Facebook wall and use the hashtags #SeeTheAbility and #WorldDownSyndromeDay.
