Walk to End Alzheimer's to Kick off at Lee Park

Posted: Updated:

Volunteers are preparing for Charlottesville's annual Walk to End Alzheimer's. It starts Saturday at Lee Park.

It's almost a three mile route through downtown. Last year, nearly 900 people took part. Organizers say they expect even more people this year.

Angie Sheffer is organizing a team to walk in memory of her mother who died of Alzheimer's in September.

"Unlike cancer, there is no remission there is only death, so unfortunately she succumbed so now we want to get the word out and educate others and raise money to get a cure for this disease," she said. Registration starts at 8 in the morning and the walk kicks off at 9.
