Mark your Calendars for the Seventh Annual 22q at the Zoo for Sunday May 21st, 2017

Organized and developed by The International 22q11.2 Foundation, 22q at the Zoo is an event that gives families, friends and professionals a chance to socialize, network and raise the public profile of chromosome 22q11.2 syndromes.

Volunteers spread awareness by handing out our 22q fact sheets and educating anyone interested enough to stop and ask about 22q. The event kicks off in New Zealand and continues westward ending in the South Pacific having literally circled the globe. Participants are recognizable, wearing the official “22q at the Zoo” red T-shirt and “Ask me about 22q” buttons.
