More than one thousand people came out Saturday for a walk to raise money and awareness for Down syndrome.

The Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin provides support to families and people with Down syndrome.

The money raised during the walk funds speech therapy, adoptions, and scholarships.

Organizers thanked the community for an outpouring of support.

"This is our best that we've ever had, and we just hope that we continue to grow and expand our reach of awareness," said Sherry Nedens, Board Member, DSAW.

The awareness walk raised more than $108,000, well over the $75,000 goal.
