March 21st is National Down Syndrome day and people across the state can show their love and support for downs by wearing mismatched socks.


National Down Syndrome day was first observed in 2006 in many countries around the world and the day has been recognized by the United Nations since 2012.

“Down Syndrome is the third replication of the 21st chromosome, said Brent Lape co-founder of Running for Lily and The Lily Pad. “Our kids have three copies of the 21st and today it’s a way that people can participate to celebrate differences and honor all of our loved ones that rock an extra 21st.”
