On December 19 2011, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 21st as World Down Syndrome Day.
Why March 21st?
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
In observance of World Down Syndrome Day Anchor Care & Rehab Center celebrated by having Crazy Socks Day – There were a lot of contestants, but it came down to one Winner, Lavlanette Buteau, CNA, with her crazy green and blue, stars & stripes socks. Congratulations!
