Message from Mayor Holt
Thank you Mayor David Holt for your consistent support! Learn more about the Down Syndrome Virtual 5k & Parade of Inclusion and how to get involved at www.dsfestivaland5k.com.
The health and safety of our loved ones with Down syndrome is extremely important to us. We hope you will run virtually and participate in our parade to celebrate our loved ones with Down syndrome on Sept. 26. Money raised at the festival will stay in central Oklahoma to serve our growing families as well as other programs and related services. We are so excited to share all the exciting opportunities our organization makes available to our families. Through your support, DSACO provides:
Free tutoring services and speech therapy for individuals with Down syndrome
Microwave-based cooking classes for teens and adult
New parent packets and quarterly new parent breakfasts
Parent-to-parent support meetings
Workshops for parents, self-advocates, and educators
Scholarships for families to attend national conventions
Education and medical outreach initiatives
Family and teen/adult events and programs
As always, we will continue to further our mission of promoting acceptance and inclusion!
THANK YOU for supporting DSACO's mission to
"raise awareness and provide resources, as well as promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down syndrome."
