PCV Murcor was proud to sponsor the Rock n’ Paint booth at Club 21’s Together is Better Walk on October 19, 2019 in Pasadena, CA . The event raised over $200,000 with the purpose of providing the Down syndrome community with the ongoing educational tools and resources needed to be fully included.
Families with a Down syndrome child find Club 21 at different steps along their child’s journey. The organization provides a vision for their child that is full of possibilities, access, independence, and belonging. Down syndrome is the most commonly occurring chromosomal condition, occurring once in every 691 babies born. In the U.S. alone, there are more than 400,000 individuals living with Down syndrome.
The annual fundraising event includes nearly 2,500 participants walking the grounds of Pasadena’s Central Park while interacting with volunteers at game and activity booths. PCV Murcor employees and their families volunteered their time to help children with Down syndrome and their siblings express their creativity by coloring pictures on rocks.
