23-11-2016 07:00

Celebrities joined models with Down’s Syndrome on the catwalk in the fashion show called “Be Beautiful, Be Yourself.”. Celebrities Hilary Swank, Queen Latifah, and Jamie Foxx were part of the group. 

Deondra Dixon, Jamie Foxx’s sister, has Down’s Syndrome and walked with Queen Latifah.

The annual event raises money for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, and this year it raised $2.1 million for research and medical care.

Difficult words: celebrity (a famous person), Down’s Syndrome (a medical disorder that affects a person’s brain and physical appearance), catwalk (a thin, long stage that people walk out on during fashion shows).
