More than 600 residents from the Columbus-area joined the Alzheimers Association Walk to End Alzheimers in the fight to end Alzheimers disease on Sunday, at Mill Race Center. Participants raised $115,223, exceeding the Greater Indiana Chapters goal of $98,000.
We couldnt be more thrilled with the support weve received from this community, said Kyle Davern, manager, Walk to End Alzheimers Columbus. The event itself is an important way for individuals and families who are impacted by the disease to come together in a spirit of hope, and every dollar raised has an impact long after the last participant crosses the finish line.
Organizers say that the money raised through the Walk to End Alzheimers supports local care and support programs available to the community free of charge. It also funds Alzheimers and dementia research.
