15th annual Down Syndrome Walk

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - The 15th- annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk took place Saturday morning at the Omni Center. 

The walk is a celebration for families with children diagnosed with Down Syndrome. 

Besides a walk, families enjoyed face painting, games, and raffles.

One family affected by down syndrome said the walk is a way to show support for one another. 

"(It's) having people to talk to that are going through the same thing and realizing that all these kids are more alike than different so it means everything," said Jacob Dummer, whose daughter has Down Syndrome.

The event is sponsored by the La Crosse chapter of the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin.
