Rockin’ with Ruby’s Rainbowl for the 3rd year

Ruby of Ruby's Rainbow

Austin (KXAN) – While some people may view Down Syndrome as a set-back, one Austin family is rocking and rolling with their daughter, Ruby, who has the disorder.

Down Syndrome is when a person has an extra 21st chromosome.

Ruby’s family started a non-profit to help others who have the disorder. Ruby’s Rainbow has given scholarships to adult Down Syndrome individuals.

They’re throwing their third annual Ruby’s Rockin’ Rainbowl on Sunday, June 22nd. For information, click here. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
