LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)—Down Syndrome Indiana held an awareness walk at McCutcheon High School on Sunday.

This walk raises money for down syndrome.

Local families in Greater Lafayette helped plan the event, in hopes of raising awareness for their children who have down syndrome.

This year is the fourth annual buddy walk.

Regional Event Coordinator Lilly Capecci said she hopes people will walk away more accepting of differences.

"The Buddy Walk is really important because it raises awareness for individuals with Down Syndrome," said Capecci. "And it helps people to see that they are just like typical people. They want to be included, they want to be loved, they want to have friends, they want to be invited to things."
