Hello,

We, the Up About Down board members would like to take a few moments to express our gratitude towards you, our families for your enthusiastic participation during our bowling event this past weekend, on Sunday, November 4, 2018. It was a terrific experience and we are so thrilled that approximately 110 people showed up to share the fun, food and friendship with one another.

This is our vision…that we continue to make it a priority for our families and members to come together, to enjoy activities but also to feel comfortable to receive as well as to offer mutual support and understanding, depending on where we are in our journeys.

Let’s continue to keep our loved ones with Down syndrome at the center of our circle, enhancing their lives…and therefore our own.

Rock Your Socks Awareness Campaign for World Down Syndrome Day
Mar 21 all-day

March is such a special month for us as we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on March 21! This year we are looking to get our whole community involved in the fun and awareness and the Board has been working hard to reach out to various organizations in our community.

All of Windsor-Essex is invited to learn about Down Syndrome and Rock their Socks with us! If you would like to help us share the message, we have attached a fun informational package. If you’d like, please feel free to share this with any companies, schools or groups that can help us spread Awareness about World Down Syndrome Day! We would love to see the whole community Rocking their Socks!

Full details are in the attached participation package and will be shared on social media too. If you prefer a hard copy of the participation package, please let us know and we’ll coordinate a way to get it out to you. Upon request we will also be providing groups with a poster to include in their photos as they rock their socks!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to respond to Celesta at info@upaboutdown.org and remember to share your pics!

World Down Syndrome Day Awareness at Kingsville Public School @ Kingsville Public School
Mar 21 all-day

 

Tommy and Soham’s school, Kingsville Public School, has put up a display case for Down Syndrome Awareness. The t-shirts are for sale for $15 each on the school cash online site. Kingsville Public School is asking for the students to purchase a shirt and wear it on March 21 in support of World Down Syndrome Day. They are hoping to make a profit from selling the shirts to then donate to Up About Down.

The boys teacher and DSW in their room have embraced World Down Syndrome Day and thought of making and selling shirts on their own, very touching!
