This year, for a limited time, the Nassau County Police Activity League Unit will be offering unique, NCPAL WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY t-shirts.

All of the net proceeds from the purchase of the shirt will go to help benefit the NCPAL Special Needs Unit and their activities.

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is marked each year on March 21. The 21st day of March (the 3rd month of the year) was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

This causes physical and mental developmental delays and disabilities.

Many of the disabilities are lifelong, and they can also shorten life expectancy. However, people with Down syndrome can live healthy and fulfilling lives. Recent medical advances, as well as cultural and institutional support for people with Down syndrome and their families, provides many opportunities to help overcome the challenges of this condition.

At the NCPAL Special Needs Unit,  we provide sports and recreation programs specific to the entire special needs population in order to make a difference for these participants and their families and make their lives as fulfilling and typical as possible.

Orders will be taken until March 15th to ensure delivery by March 21st.
