March 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Sock Hop for World Down Syndrome Day

March 21 in Fort Wayne

World Down Syndrome Day was established in 2006 by Down Syndrome International, with the goal of raising awareness and mobilizing support and recognition of the dignity, rights and well-being of people with Down syndrome across the world. March 21, the 21st day of the third month of the year, was chosen to symbolize the third copy of chromosome 21 present in Trisomy 21, the most common form of Down syndrome.

In Honor of World Down Syndrome Day, Fort Wayne’s Martin Luther King Bridge will be lit in blue and yellow on March 21, starting 30 minutes before dusk. DSANI and GiGi’s Playhouse will be holding a Sock Hop with pizza and snacks.
