The Chasing Hazel Foundation strives to educate and raise awareness about how important individuals with Down syndrome are to our community. We advocate for inclusion on all levels and compassion as a means to strengthen our community as a whole. We have a vision for the future to be a more accepting place where potential is highlighted, differences are celebrated and the uniqueness of each individual person is respected and appreciated.
We offer a playgroup session - “Off to College” Playgroup - to young families that have children with Down syndrome from ages 0-12. It’s a group where there is a focus on socialization for the children AND the parents. A place to form relationships while the children explore and learn in a child friendly environment.
World Down Syndrome Day
Rock Your Socks!!! March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. A day we celebrate all that people with Down syndrome have to offer our communities and families. On this day we invite the community to come together and advocate, educate and spread the word about what Down syndrome actually IS by providing information that dispels myths and stereotypes and highlights the achievements of individuals with Down syndrome.
