World Down Syndrome Day and Dance-a-thon Cancelled
Mar 21 all-day

The health and well-being of our members and the community is a priority and so unfortunately we have postponed our Dance-a-Thon for World Down Syndrome Day. We look forward to sharing details about a new date in the upcoming weeks.

The community can still celebrate together by sharing photos of themselves Rocking their Socks next Saturday, and what a great way that will be to share some positivity in the world!

As we count down to World Down Syndrome Day this week, we’ll be thanking those that have committed their support. Today we’d like to thank Meteor Systems BV, CenterLine (Windsor) Limited and Contract Glaziers !

If you’re interested in getting involved, please message us or email info@upaboutdown.org to be emailed a participation package!

Down Syndrome Day Walk Cancelled @ Malden Park
Mar 22 @ 11:30 am – 2:30 pm

Hello everyone,

As many of you know, the school has made some changes to classes as a result of COVID-19. They have also cancelled all on-and-off campus events that involve the general public. Unfortunately, this means that we are going to have to cancel our Down Syndrome Day Walk event. We will not be postponing the event to a later date, as we are unsure when events will be running again and it is getting closer and closer to the end of the semester.

We are so sorry it had to come down to this, but we hope to see everyone out next year!!

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy 🙂
