Down Syndrome Day. The Down Syndrome Centre North East, based in the C.Tek building on Riverside Road, Carrickmacross, provides services for Monaghan and parts of Cavan, Meath and Louth. It is a non-profit organisation, which provides both on-line and at the Centre services. During Covid many of the services were complimentary to ease the financial burden on families impacted by Covid. This year, more than ever, the support of the public is required in order to maintain the level of services and to continue to fulfil its mission, which is highly regarded and appreciated by Down Syndrome families. March 21st was World Down Syndrome Day and it is held on this significant date each year as it is the 21st Chromosome that is triplicated in Down Syndrome hence the 21/03 each year. This year the event organised by the North East Centre was planned as a virtual one, like so many other events being organised by other charities and the called it 321 GO Neon. People were asked to dress up in colourful clothing and complete 3km running/walking to celebrate the day and to raise funds for the Centre. If you would like to help and make a donation you can give to some Down Syndrome family in your locality or visit the Down Syndrome North East website at dscnortheast.ie/events and you can contribute through that site.
