NJ First Lady Mary Pat Christie

 

Since 2011, First Lady Mary Pat Christie of New Jersey has celebrated World Down Syndrome Day by spearheading a special initiative, the Light the Way Campaign. This campaign shines the light on the advances being made in cognitive research for Down syndrome, recognizing the discoveries that have been made as a result of LuMind RDS-funded research projects.

This year, the 17 states have already pledged to join First Lady Mary Pat Christie in this show of support by illuminating a prominent state monument blue, issuing proclamations in support for Down syndrome, or tying a blue bow around their State House door.

So if you are in any of the states below, send us a photo of how your state is recognizing World Down Syndrome Day and the advances of LuMind RDS-supported research!
