Global Down Syndrome Foundation featured in Emmy Award-Winning Born This Way

Born This Way’s episode 2 of season 2 features Megan attending one of Global’s I Love You Dance Parties with her boyfriend, Brenden, as her date. Megan launched Global’s celiac disease research and awareness campaign at this I Love You Dance Party where she danced the night away with 150 celebrants and encouraged fellow self-advocates to participate in a simple Down syndrome and celiac disease research program aptly named “Spit to be Fit!”  The quarterly party is one of the many events that Global offers self-advocates, supporters and their families. Megan and the other attendees danced with friends and enjoyed nightclub-style bottle service. Global is proud to support and be featured in a show that is gathering international acclaim for the honest way it tells the true stories of a group of young adults with Down syndrome.
