EDUCATE: Use this day to start conversations that lead to education, acceptance, inclusion and equity for our loved ones. Here are some helpful resources for Explaining Down Syndrome to your class.


SUPPORT MCDSIG: Buy your socks through our fundraiser with Pals and $5 for each pair goes to Montgomery County Down Syndrome Interest Group programs and outreach!


Why rock socks?
It’s fun!
It’s easy for people to participate!
It’s inexpensive!
It’s a conversation starter that can lead to changed minds and hearts!
…..And when you look at the karotype (picture), chromosomes look like bright colorful socks! People with Down syndrome have an extra 21st chromosome (3/21!!!) and they rock it!

So rock your most colorful, fun, spunky socks to celebrate all the ways people with Down syndrome brighten our lives.
