Now through October, the Minnesota-North Dakota Alzheimers Association is hosting more than a dozen walks to raise money and awareness to help find a cure for the devastating disease.

“The funding from the Walks to End Alzheimer’s really support all of our programs, so that the local programs and support that we provide, our advocacy efforts and of course that all-important research.”

CEO Susan Parriot says participants can walk in person at the events, or walk in or near their own home. For more information on where and when the walks are taking place, you can visit alz.org.
