On Sept. 16, the Big “I" was presented the “Impact Award" by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).
The Impact Award recognizes groups and individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate their dedication to NDSS and to improving the lives of those with Down syndrome. The award represents a commitment to creating long lasting change, and highlights those who strive for those with Down syndrome to be respected, represented and included. Charles Symington, senior vice president for external, industry and government affairs accepted the award on behalf of the Big "I." He also currently serves as vice chairman of the NDSS Board.
The NDSS is the leading human rights organization for all individuals with Down syndrome. The Society seeks to enhance quality of life of those with Down syndrome to realize their life aspirations and become valued members of welcoming communities.
