Light the Way Campaign Endorsed by Governor First Spouses

Research Down Syndrome is pleased to announce that New Jersey Governor First Lady Mary Pat Christie and other Governor First Spouses are sponsoring the “Light the Way” event. This program will take place on World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2012, bringing attention to the rapidly advancing area of Down syndrome cognitive research, which holds great promise for improving memory, learning and communication for individuals of all ages with Down syndrome.

Last year, and again this year, First Spouses will promote this campaign by lighting up their respective governor residences in the color blue or engaging in other promotional activities such as displaying the Light the Way initiative on their website, bannering the event on social network platforms, or issuing state news releases, thereby bringing increased attention to Down syndrome cognitive research.

RDS encourages individuals across the country to contact their state government office and request that their state participate in this event.
