The International 22q11.2 Foundations’ Annual 22q at the Zoo – Worldwide Awareness Day (22q at the Zoo) is an international initiative to raise awareness about chromosome 22q differences. 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.
Our most recent event took place at the Toronto Zoo on Sunday, June 4th, 2023. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and everyone had a great time at this social event. Our team took the opportunity to provide families with the latest resources on 22q11.2 deletion and duplication syndromes.
