Why socks? Well, a chromosome looks a little like a sock and people with Down’s syndrome have an extra copy of the 21st chromosome.
Our Lots of Socks challenge takes place on Thursday 21st March 2024 and is a fun, easy way to help raise not only vital funds, but awareness of Down’s syndrome in Scotland.
You can take part as a family by wearing lots of socks at home, or get your nursery, school, dance class, sports club, students union or place of work involved as well by wearing lots of socks or your brightest odd socks, the choice is yours!
1. Sign up before Thursday 21st March 2024 to receive your Lots of Socks awareness and fundraising packs, including your branded collecting cans and buckets! Don't forget to set up your online fundraising page or Download & Print Off a Sponsor Form
2. Wear lots of odd, wacky or crazy socks on World Down's Syndrome Day - Thursday 21st March 2024, with family, friends, classmates or work colleagues and let's get people donating and talking about Down's syndrome in Scotland. If someone asks you about your socks you can tell them, "I'm wearing them to raise awareness of Down's syndrome".
