Thanks to everyone who came out and bowled, donated, sponsored and just had some fun at the Second Annual Ruby's Rockin' Rainbowl! Because of all the love and support from community, family and friends we were able to grant THIRTEEN scholarships this year! Be sure to check out the 2013 Rockin' Recipients to be inspired and for sure put a smile on your face!
Spreading the word on just how cool and capable individuals Rockin' that extra chromosome are! We asked families nationwide to share with us pictures or video of their family member or friend with Down syndrome 'Rockin' it'...and this is what we got! Pure awesomeness!
Ruby’s Rainbow was inspired by our own lil’ lady, Ruby. At her birth, we discovered that she had an extra special chromosome. Our expectations for her did not change and we vowed as a family to give her all of the opportunities we could to learn, grow, flourish and become an important contributor to society and to the community.
Life and learning doesn’t stop after high school and we want to help these amazing individuals with Down syndrome reach their highest potential.
Our goal at Ruby’s Rainbow is to grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome seeking post secondary education, enrichment or vocational classes who feel that higher education is the right choice for them.
It is our mission to create awareness of the capabilities of these amazing individuals and help them achieve their dreams of higher education. We plan to keep track of the recipients and our hope it that this will inspire others to go for their dreams!
