From helping those individuals lead healthier, happier, and more independent lives to funding outreach to families and the medical community, the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin (DSAW) is here to help.

They will be hosting a walk on Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Milwaukee County Zoo to spread awareness.

Dawn Nuoffer, the executive director of DSAW, and her daughter Abby, the inspiration behind so much of the work the association does, joined TODAY'S TMJ4 to talk about the upcoming event.
