Rock Your Socks

The staff at Wheeler Wolfenden & Dwares proudly supported the Rock Your Socks campaign to raise awareness for Worldwide Down Syndrome Awareness Day. Everyone was all paws in!

Every year, March 21 is celebrated with mismatched, colorful socks. You may be wondering, why mismatched socks? People with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome, which is why 3/21 was chosen as the date. The karyotype of down syndrome chromosomes actually looks like mismatched socks!
