(Windsor, Ontario) – Hundreds of St. Clair students supported World Down Syndrome Day through Rocking Socks, an initiative to raise awareness.

Students wore their craziest socks on this 21st day of the third month, which signifies the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome that makes Down Syndrome. Local ambassadors Stephanie Seguin and her four-year-old daughter Hazel, who has Down Syndrome, and her husband and two-year-old daughter Nola, visited St. Clair to share their message and thank students for getting involved.

Having Down Syndrome is something that should be celebrated, says Stephanie. She and her family advocate for respect, inclusion and understanding. Check out these pics of some of the students who participated today, and more pics on St. Clair's Facebook page at Facebook.com/StClairCollege.
