The Down Syndrome Association of Central New Jersey is a non-profit organization, dedicated to providing support, education, opportunity and enrichment to persons with Down Syndrome and their families. We are a point of contact for information and support for families who have received the diagnosis either during pregnancy or after birth of their child.
In addition, we educate our community at large about Down Syndrome with the hopes of breaking down barriers, eliminating misconceptions, and promoting inclusion for those with Down Syndrome. Our organization also has worked to improve communication in the medical community. We advocate for parents to receive their child’s diagnosis in a sensitive manner, without bias, and accompanied by accurate information on what it means to have Down Syndrome and the amazing capabilities of people with Down Syndrome.
March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. All over the world local and national organizations are celebrating what makes our children special. It is our goal to support the campaign and raise awareness for Down syndrome in the local community. We invite you to join and support us in celebrating World Down Syndrome Day.
The Down Syndrome Association of Central New Jersey will be hosting its annual “Rock Your Socks Off: Dance Off” Fundraiser March 12th at the Cranbury Inn.
This year’s event will feature Brett Gash DJ extraordinaire, dancing competitions, mismatch socks for those who pre-register, and t-shirts with sponsors’ names on the back and an exciting Silent Auction. Most importantly, the dance provides our members the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and continue to change the way people view Down syndrome through their amazing self-confidence (and of course, their great dance moves)!
This event, along with all of our functions throughout the year such as social events for our children and adults, educational seminars, and community outreach efforts, is made possible only through the generous contribution of our sponsors. You can be a true hero in the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome as a “Rock Your Socks Off: Dance Off” event sponsor and/or participant. In doing so, you will become a champion of an international event (World Down Syndrome Day) while making a huge difference locally.
Because of your generosity, we can continue to support our members and their families. Together, we can make great strides towards embracing all individuals with Down syndrome as equals and friends. Thank you for your consideration, and for believing in us!
