BECKLEY - A walk Saturday morning in Beckley brings people together for a special reason.
The first Buddy Walk took place at New River Park. The event is organized by a support group called "Down with That" that is designed to help families.
More than 200 walkers joined in and offered more than just a walk as there was also plenty of food and activities. Organizers say it's a chance for families to enjoy the day with their children and friends, and plan on continuing the buddy walk next year.
