Organized by the International 22q11.2 Foundation, the annual 22q at the Zoo Worldwide Awareness Day event at the Bronx Zoo gave families, friends and professionals a chance to socialize, network and raise public awareness of chromosome 22q11.2 syndromes.

Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) was one of many support organizations around the globe participating in local events where people gathered at their closest zoo for a day of fun and solidarity.


CHAM’s involvement in this annual event aimed at furthering understanding of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, a genetic disorder that is caused by a microdeletion of part of the long arm of chromosome 22,  and was made possible thanks to the generous support of Harboring Hearts and Einstein Buddies.
