Additional Information

Description

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated around the world on March 21, a date chosen to represent the triplication of the 21st chromosome that causes someone to have Down syndrome.

Families can join Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas (DSPNT) inside Dream Park where there will be music and live performances from the No Boundaries Dance team and Cheer Connection. Outside of Dream Park, families can have socially distanced picnics and purchase the greatest hot dogs in the world from Austin's Underdawgs.

All families have the option to join the celebration virtually to watch the performances via Facebook Live. During the performances, there will be a very special 2021 Step Up announcement.

$21 x 321 Challenge
March 1–20
In order for DSPNT to continue to be able to provide all the programs below (and more), they need your support. DSPNT have created two opportunities around WDSD for a one-time gift and an annual giving campaign with a goal of getting 321 donations of $21 during March that will support programs. You can make a one-time, tax-deductible donation, or make a monthly donation that is automatically drafted out of your account on a date you choose. You can see all donation options at WDSD.
