People were walking for a reason today.
The Down Syndrome Awareness Walk was held in Onalaska.
The walk is know as a celebration for families with
children diganosed with Down Syndrome.
Besides a walk .
familes enjoyed facepainting .
One family says the walk is a way to show the strength
of the Down Syndrome community.
Our sole goal is to make sure that our kids are included,
they're accepted, that they all have something to
bring to our community.
There is untapped potential in each and every one
of these indiviuals, my job is to find out that potential
is in him and this whole group of families helps us
The event was sponsored by the La Crosse chapter of
the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin.
