Annual Buddy Walk Held

When a child is born with down syndrome, a local organization offers unconditional support, and Saturday they gathered to raise awareness.

More than 700 supporters of the Down Syndrome Association for Families participated in the one-mile Buddy Walk.  The money raised helps to offer support and activities to those touched by someone with down syndrome.

The Down Syndrome Association for Families hoped to raise around $20,000 during Saturday's event.
