A Baltimore family shares their story of raising a son with Down syndrome, and their long-standing support of the annual BWI Run/Walk fundraising event for Kennedy Krieger's Down Syndrome Program

Since Scott was born, his family has participated in the annual BWI run and walk to benefit Kennedy Krieger's Down Syndrome Clinic. It's a 4 mile run or a 2 mile family walk that helps raise money for Kennedy Krieger and local Down Syndrome support groups. Both have made a positive impact on Scotty and his family. "The other parents are able to tell us and clue us in on various therapies. If you have someone that has the same life experience it's a wonderful feeling," Wingfield said. Watch the full story.
