World Down Syndrome Day is held annually on March 21 of each year to raise awareness, inclusion, and acceptance for the Down syndrome community. Down syndrome is one of the most common genetic conditions with approximately 1 in every 800 babies being born with Down syndrome. The date is special and represents how people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome.

To celebrate this special day, the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association (MVDSA) hosts a free celebration for all persons with Down syndrome and their immediate family.
