WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Hundreds of people gathered at Cumberland Park Sunday for a walk to end Alzheimer's.
Event Organizers said the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Lafayette is one of more than 650 walks being held nationwide.
The event raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support.
Community outreach specialist Sarah May said her greatest passion is fighting to help find a cure for the disease.
"I've had two grandparents with Alzheimer's disease. For me it's a passion in my heart. It's something that so many people have been affected by. I couldn't do anything to stop it from grandparents, so for me this is one way that we can try and stop it for someone else out there." said May.
According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than 5,000,000 Americans live with Alzheimer's and nearly one in three adults 65 or older dies each year from Alzheimer's or other dementia diseases.
