Do You Have a Family Member or Friend with Down Syndrome?

If so, this individual and their families/caretakers are invited to join us for Danie’s Day on Saturday, March 14.

Danie’s Day is a special event in memory of Danielle Rose, Class of 2015. Danielle Rose, Class of 2015. Danielle was an Arrupe Scholar, whose passions were rooted in helping children like her sister, April, who has Down syndrome. Danielle passed away in September 2012, and her classmates decided to establish an event to keep her commitment to those with disabilities alive.

Co-sponsored by the Students for Social Justice and Sigma Phi Epsilon and in partnership with Northeast Ohio’s UpSide of Downs organization, Danie’s Day is an event where JCU students will be paired with children and adults with special needs to partake in activities including karaoke, crafts and games.
