World Down Syndrome Day is annually observed on March 21, signifying the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome, which results in Down syndrome.   This day is celebrated to raise public awareness of Down Syndrome and to help spread awareness and acceptance by rocking a pair of crazy socks on this day.

Grant Topp, along with his family and friends, donated socks to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital for patients and staff.  Their hope is when asked why the crazy socks, the response can be that we are celebrating all the wonderful things about individuals with down syndrome and helping to promote inclusion and acceptance.
