Down Syndrome Awareness Week

posted Mar 21, 2017, 7:38 AM by Jeff Chaisson
March 20th - 24th is Down Syndrome Awareness Week.  Down Syndrome affects about 1 in every 700 children born in Canada. (See here for info)  Robert Baldwin will help to raise awareness throughout the week by selling bracelets from the Halton Down Syndrome Association (HDSA) for $1.00 each.  We will also wear 'Funky Socks' on Friday, March 24th to help support the HDSA's 'Lots of Socks' Campaign to raise awareness.
