PostSubject: Down syndrome awareness month... Your thoughts...   Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:37 pm

I was contacted on fb, by a friend, who is working on a grass roots movement to change Ds awareness month to March. (3/21 is world Down syndrome awareness, so it would go neat with that.)

Some in our group here actually agree too that it needs to be in March. Mostly because of the fact that breast cancer awareness month is in October and so many others. But BC is the biggest, and far overshadows, (in my opinion as it should, outside of the Susan K issue, I just think it is great that it is that big)

Anyway, back on track. What are your thoughts about Down syndrome awareness month changing? I know some people it does not mean anything to you, cuz you don't join in that effort anyhow, cuz not everyone can do everything, or we would all go crazy, lol but for those who do, what are your thoughts? For those who don't, of course your thoughts are welcome as well! LOL

I don't want it to change. I like it in October. I love the Buddy Walk being in the month of DS Awareness and that being in October. Beautiful weather, great month for a walk!!

I also love World DS Day being in March. I like that we kinda get 2 months.

I know a few weeks back there was some talk on FB about trying to get it changed. Honestly, I hope it doesn't get changed. I hope the majority rules...whatever that may be. I'd hate for a handful of people to make a decision for the rest of us and then for it to get changed.

Just my opinion. Wink

This is why I asked. I want to hear from all directions. This is great Beth. I like your rationale. It makes sense to me. I wonder what direction this will go. All I know, is I am just gonna watch and see what happens.

It really makes no difference to me. I will say the day of our local buddy walk there was not one single thing mentioned about it on the news. Even though there was a news crew there. But they did have 3 stories about BC including one about dogs walking for bc. So on that note I would kind of like to see the walk and everything moved to another month. But that is just me, and the way things are here Smile

I thought it was already in March, oops.
It doesn't matter to me when, just so long as there is one.

I'd prefer it was in March. As far as Buddy Walks go, I'd rather see them in March than in October...mainly because they are overshadowed by BC walks...and also because it's COLD in a lot of places in October. Plus, the logical part of my brain thinks that if WDS Day is 3-21, then DS awareness month should be in the month that is "3".

So yes, I'd like to see it changed. But, if it stays in Oct, I'm good with that too.
