World Down Syndrome Awareness Day is Wednesday, March 21. An organization called 21FrienDS is sponsoring a program that day at White's of Westport to help families and children living with that genetic condition. Kimberly Legendre of 21FrienDS visits Townsquare Sunday and talks about the event with WBSM's Jim Phillips and the challenges that children and families may face when living with a child who has Down Syndrome.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
