Celebrate Community.

The Buddy Walk is a nationwide event, created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995, that consists of a one-mile walk as well as a day of outdoor games and activities. It is an inspirational and educational event that celebrates the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome.

Together, the Texas Lassos and the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas organize the annual 3.2.1 Fun Run in an effort to increase awareness and knowledge of Down syndrome, fundraise for DSACT, and provide a fun family-friendly event for the local community.

Come on out to unwind and dine on amazing desserts, specialty drinks and great food. Enjoy spending the evening with good company, great music, dancing and games. Additionally, bid on and win fantastic items in our silent auction. Your support makes it possible for us to provide many programs and services to our members with Down syndrome. We hope to see you there!

We are excited to continue our annual Share the Passion campaign and happy to announce that we will be replacing the traditional calendars with a more versatile collection of high-end notebooks!  Each picture on the notebook will tell its own story about the individuals with Down syndrome and the celebrity with whom they share the same passion. Our goal is to raise awareness of how individuals with Down syndrome are ‘more alike than different’ than anyone else.
