Dress Down (or Up!) for Ds

The Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio invites your school, company or organization to participate in a Dress Down or Dress Up for Down Syndrome Day. This event raises awareness for Down syndrome within Northeast Ohio schools, businesses and organizations while raising much needed funds to support our programs.

To participate in Dress Down for Down Syndrome Day, participants wear casual clothes and are encouraged to donate $5 for this “privilege.” While you can hold your event at anytime, we recommend you consider holding your day during the month of October to recognize National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, or on March 21st which is World Down Syndrome Day −3/21 is representative of having 3 copies, instead of two, of the 21st chromosome.

It is a fun, rewarding day that benefits individuals with Down syndrome and their families thoughout Northeast Ohio. To learn more and get your FREE Dress Down for Down Syndrome kit, contact Leslie Burke, Development Director at leslieb@usod.org
