A little rain didn't dampen the spirits of some folks who came out to support the National Down Syndrome Society at this year's Clarksburg Buddy Walk.
The Buddy Walk began in 1995 as a way to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. It started out as just 17 walks around the world back then, but now that number is almost 300 worldwide. In 2010, the Buddy Walk raised more then 10.2 million dollars for Down Syndrome Awareness all across the United States
