Due to the rising concerns related to the local and national spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, we have been closely monitoring the situation while planning for how to best keep the community we serve safe in this uncertain time. People with Down syndrome are at a heightened risk of complications from illness due to age and/or compromised immune systems. Our number one priority is the safety of the people we serve, volunteers and our staff.  Right now, our focus is on taking a proactive approach to protecting the health of the Down syndrome community. With that goal and advice given from the Pediatric Down Syndrome Clinic at PCH, we made the difficult decision to cancel the World Down Syndrome Day celebration scheduled for March 21st. While this is disappointing for all of us, we are taking action to prevent any unnecessary risk for the people we serve. 


A family carnival-style picnic. Food Trucks selling their signature food items. Train rides, petting zoo, face painting, mascots and cheerleaders, music,dancing and so much more! Visit with friends and celebrate the individuals we love with Down syndrome.
