Just like every other event in 2020, the Walk to End Alzheimer's takes a different course this year. Rather than gathering everyone together for one big event they're doing it virtually anywhere and everywhere.

Alzheimer's Disease is brutal to both the patient and those who love them. Those with the disease know there's something going on but can't figure out what it is, and those who know them see their friend or family member slowly slipping away even though they're sitting just across the table. Funds raised by these annual walks help to find a cure.

Each year, those who care get together to walk and raise funds. Usually it's at a local walking track with everyone participating together, but due to COVID-19 concerns this year's event can be held wherever you want it to be.
