22q at the Toronto Zoo Day is an international initiative to raise awareness about 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. The Toronto event is co-hosted by the 22q Deletion Syndrome Clinic at SickKids Hospital and the Dalglish Family 22q Clinic.

The focus of the day is for individuals with 22q, their families and Clinic staff to socialize, network and raise awareness of 22q in the community. Participants also have the chance to join in fun activities with their friends and families and enjoy a day at the Toronto Zoo.

The 2019 event will take place on May 26th (Sunday).
