Michiana Walk to End Alzheimer’s helped fight the disease Sunday
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – The Michiana Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Mishawaka helped raise awareness and funds for the disease on Sunday.
Residents began the walk after the 2 p.m. ceremony at Central Park in Mishawaka to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, with around 400 individuals and 60 teams.
“And a lot of people don’t talk about it because they don’t know a lot about it. So we really want to just get the word out there, raise awareness, you don’t have to fight this battle alone. There are so many people here that are willing to help you,” volunteer Katie Pickard said.
All donations and funds raised will support the care and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association.
The event nationally is the largest event to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease, with over 600 walks happening across the country.
