WHAT: The Empire State Building in New York City and the historic Daniels & Fisher Tower in downtown Denver will light up blue and yellow in honor of World Down Syndrome Day.

WHEN: Night of Saturday, March 21, 2015 (World Down Syndrome Day)

WHERE: Empire State Building, 350 Fifth Ave., New York, NY 10118
Daniels & Fisher Tower, 1601 Arapahoe St., Denver, CO 80202

WHY: World Down Syndrome Day started on March 21, 2006, in Singapore. The date, 3/21, represents the 3 copies of chromosome 21 that people with Down syndrome have. World Down Syndrome Day has developed into a movement that both celebrates and values people with Down syndrome around the world, which is evidenced by the United Nations recognizing World Down Syndrome Day in 2011. Blue and yellow are the colors of Down syndrome awareness.

Global would like to thank Holly Kylberg and the property management at the Daniels & Fisher Tower for making the tower lighting possible.
