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!

Dance-a-Thon FUNdraiser @ Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex
May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This year we’re excited to shake and shimmy things up with a Dance-a-Thon. The Dance-a-Thon allows us to fund raise for all of our wonderful activities we have in store for next year it’s also a great way to celebrate with each other and get to know other UAD members!

There will be fun door prizes, face painting and some exciting mini-dance competitions like musical chairs, limbo and freeze dance where you can win too! We’ll be serving hot dogs, fries, chicken fingers, veggies and ice cream. Please let your group leader know if you have dietary restrictions that we can accommodate.

Please provide your RSVP to Celesta at celestagaba@gmail.com and include your family name and total headcount of attendees, and RSVP to your group leader by Monday, May 20, 2019.

If you are interested in helping or know of any students looking for volunteer hours please email celestagaba@gmail.com to be added to the volunteer list.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
