The second annual local Walk to End Alzheimer’s is tomorrow morning and organizers are expecting another successful event.
James Patterson of the Pennyrile Agency on Aging says families caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s approached him a few years ago about organizing a local walk since they had to travel to Clarksville and Muhlenberg County to participate in one of the many walks across the country.
Patterson says several people helped organize the inaugural event, which attracted over 500 people and raised over forty thousand dollars. Patterson says the walk is an opportunity for affected families to come together.
The money raised goes toward Alzheimer’s research through the Alzheimer’s Association and the participating walk teams usually get donations from friends and family, according to Patterson.
There will also be a ceremony to remember those who have been lost to Alzheimer’s. The walk begins at 10am at the Christian County Justice Center and registration will be at 9 o’clock.
