From the Texas Lassos

Texas Lassos is classified as a service organization at the University of Texas at Austin. As an organization, we strive to promote spirit, service, and social activities to all members while fostering friendship, leadership, and cooperation with the University and community. Founded in 1998 with only seven members, today Texas Lassos is home to about one hundred and twenty active members and an accomplished group of alumni. In 2012, Texas Lassos adopted DSACT as our philanthropy as a way to concentrate a portion of each member’s service efforts. We volunteer with DSACT by assisting at their weekend classes and large events. We form bonds with the children and their families and find great joy in seeing a smile on each DSACT member’s face! We will be partnering with DSACT to put on the 3.2.1 Fun Run in which all proceeds will go towards benefiting and supporting families in Central Texas affected by Down syndrome.
