LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The chill Saturday morning did not stop thousands of people from turning out for Down Syndrome of Louisville's We're on the Move walk and 5K event.

The event started 15 years ago and raised $10,000. Saturday, nearly $200,000 were raised. Adults and children with Down syndrome raced for their own gold medals during the event.

Money raised helps to support the Down Syndrome Lifelong Learning Centers in Kentuckiana.
