Down syndrome is one of the least-funded genetic conditions by the National Institutes of Health. The Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show aims to change this by providing critical funds for medical care, research, education and advocacy for people with Down syndrome. Last year’s event raised $1.5 million. Proceeds support the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome on the Anschutz Medical Campus, groundbreaking research on Alzheimer’s disease and Down syndrome, and the Sie Center for Down Syndrome at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
