Light the Way 2018

Global is so grateful to First Lady Valerie Sununu of New Hampshire and First Lady Robin Hickenlooper of Colorado for chairing the Light the Way Campaign, an initiative started in 2011 by First Lady Mary Pat Christie of New Jersey to shine a light on the groundbreaking advances being made to empower individuals with Down syndrome! We are honored to have partnered with First lady Sununu and First Lady Hickenlooper to highlight Global’s initiatives that are making a difference for people with Down syndrome throughout the country.

On the evening of Wednesday, March 21st as part of the Light the Way campaign, New Hampshire and Colorado lit the Governor’s Residences in blue in recognition of Down syndrome research. This date has particular significance as Down syndrome results from the presence of three copies of chromosome 21. Below are all the participating states from 2018!
