Fun Fact of “Rock Your Socks” for World Down Syndrome Day – March 21st

By | News | No Comments

Little fun fact of “Rock Your Socks” for World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) on March 21st:

These are chromosomes.
The one circled is chromosome 21 – note the three copies of the chromosome. This is Trisomy 21 also known as Down syndrome. You and I have just two copies of Chromosome 21. People with Down syndrome have 3 copies.
They look like socks, right? This is where the idea of Rock your Socks for World Down Syndrome Day was born from… simple!

On March 21st, World Down Syndrome Day, we celebrate and raise awareness by wearing our brightest, loudest socks.
And why is WDSD held on March 21st?
21:3 (chromosome 21, 3 copies = 21st day of 3rd month of the year)
