EVENT: Agents of Change 2016
Down Moms of Laredo, is a non-profit organization located in the community of Laredo, that was created and co-founded by Cindy, J. Rubio, Yazmin Charles and Amber Rodriguez who are each a mother to a child with Down syndrome. They saw a need in the community for more Down syndrome awareness and support, and their love and passion for their children and for all of those with Down syndrome brought them together to start the organization.
Down syndrome occurs in about 1 in 800 newborns. About 5,300 babies with Down syndrome are born in the United States each year, and approximately 200,000 people in this country have the condition. Since established, Down Moms of Laredo has had the vision to build a global understanding of the beauty of Down syndrome and to embrace and give individuals with Down syndrome limitless opportunities to reach their full potential.
Down Moms of Laredo believes that individuals with Down syndrome are lives worth loving and celebrating. We are raising funds to support this amazing organization with their mission to equip and benefit those with Down Syndrome and their families through public awareness, education, support, and advocacy.
