Family’s sock collection for students, teachers at Central Elementary raises awareness about Down Syndrome.

Daylee Powe


Kate Powe is one proud mother.


Her daughter Daylee is a beautiful, talented student at Central Elementary who has Down Syndrome.


You might remember Daylee from when she was featured in a video in Times Square last year as part of an awareness presentation by the National Down Syndrome Society. 


Now, Kate is gearing up for World Down Syndrome Day on March 21 with a sock collection.


“Every year on World Down Syndrome Day, people wear crazy socks for a movement called ‘Rock Your Socks,’” Kate told Beneath the Surface News.

“Socks look like chromosomes and people with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome.”

The family partnered with Pal’s Socks to raise local awareness about Down Syndrome.


“Central Elementary has been so awesome about inclusion and acceptance of Daylee,” Kate said.

“Our family wants to provide each child and teacher with a pair of crazy socks to wear on March 21.”


Socks are $11 each for kids and $15 for adults and can be ordered here.


For every pair ordered, Pal’s will donate $5 to the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network, the largest national organization supporting new and expectant parents of children with a Down syndrome diagnosis.
