EDMESTON – World Down Syndrome Day is March 21st and Pathfinder Village will celebrate with a week full of fun events and awareness activities.

A remarkable planned residential community for people with Down syndrome and other disabilities, Pathfinder Village will join other organizations during the global observance.

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) has been observed since 2006; it first received recognition by the United Nations in 2012. March 21, “3-21,” was selected as the celebration date as it represents the triplication of the 21st chromosome, the genetic cause of 95 percent of occurrences of Down syndrome.
