Danie’s Day Buddy Registration is Open

Danie’s Day is a special event in memory of 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 the Arrupe Scholars 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 the Upside of Downs, Danie’s Day will be held on campus on Saturday, March 12. JCU students will be paired with a child or adult with special needs to partake in activities including karaoke, crafts and games. Lunch will be provided.

A training session provided by the Upside of Downs will start promptly at 10 a.m. in the LSC Conference Room. The guests will arrive at 11 a.m. and the event ends at 2 p.m. Students are required to stay with their buddy until the end of the event.

Space is limited so register today! To register, visit: https://johncarrolluniversity.wufoo.com/forms/danies-day-2016-student-participation/.
