Zurich supports World Down Syndrome Day

Wear, share and show you care on 21st March for World Down Syndrome Day. Wear your most colourful socks, share your photos on social media, make a donation and join in to create awareness around Down syndrome.

On the 21st March, wear your loudest socks and raise awareness for World Down Syndrome Day. The ‘Lots of Socks’ campaign is celebrated each year on 21st March with the aim of getting people talking about Down syndrome.

The reason World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on this day is due to the fact that it is a third copy of the 21st chromosome that causes Down syndrome, so it naturally had to celebrated on 21st March.

On this day, everyone is encouraged to ‘wear, share and show you care’ by wearing your most colourful socks or colourful hat. You can then share your photos on social media and show you care by making a donation.
