DSACT's vision is a world in which all members, including those with Down syndrome, are accepted, valued for their uniqueness, respected for their abilities and contributions, and assured the opportunity and choice to create their own path to fulfillment and success. Our mission is to provide education, support, and resources to individuals with Down syndrome, their families and professionals and the community while building public awareness and acceptance of the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome.
This year, AUSTIN GIVES MILES, the philanthropy program of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon, is aiming to raise $250,000 for 25 local and national not-for-profits. You can help Central Texas non-profits advance their missions through community awareness and active fundraising.
