Awards and Scholarships

The Chloe’s Cause mission is to raise awareness and help families with children with Down Syndrome. Getting our youth involved is a big part of changing the way that future generations view Down Syndrome; therefore, Chloe’s Cause is excited to offer two awards to high school students.
