WHAT IS DOWN SYNDROME?

Each human cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes; one copy inherited from each parent forms a pair for a total of 46.   In Down syndrome, each cell in the body has three copies of the 21st chromosome instead of two for a total of 47. 

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day, a global awareness day officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.  The date was chosen by Down Syndrome International (DSI) to represent Down syndrome, the triplication of the 21st chromosome.

OUR MISSION 

To further awareness of the contributions and needs of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise funds for advocacy, service, and research organizations.

As part of our mission to support Down syndrome resrearch, all funds raised by these events are donated to Down syndrome research.  
 
Down Syndrome International selected the date for WDSD (3/21)--being the 21st day of the 3rd month-- to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

OUR VISION

Alexander's Angels envisions a world where individuals with Down syndrome are not defined by their disability but by their individuality.

 


OUR GOALS

The long term goal of Alexander's Angels is to promote recognition of the often overlooked attributes of individuals with Down syndrome by highlighting their abilities.

Alexander's Angels aims to raise awareness outside the Down syndrome community by continuing working with local colleges and with Down syndrome organizations in a collaborative effort to promote a better understanding of people with Down syndrome by presenting the person with Down syndrome for what he/she is, a person with feelings and abilities much like anyone else.  To that end Alexander's Angels aims to organize events that showcase to the community-at-large special talents within the Down syndrome community.

Past Buddy Walks®
8th-2014 
7th-2013 
 
The Buddy Walk® , created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome, is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups and other organizations, schools, and motivated individuals. 
 
Alexander's Angels, Inc. has been the organizer of the Buddy Walk® on Long Island since its inception in 2007.  Funds raised benefit local programs and services, Down syndrome cognitive research, as well as local and national advocacy and awareness initiative that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.  This activity, therefore, fullfills Alexander's Angels  mission to further awareness of the contributions and needs of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise funds for advocacy, service, and research organizations.
