More than 600 residents from the Columbus-area joined the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease on Sunday, at Mill Race Center. Participants raised $115,223, exceeding the Greater Indiana Chapter’s goal of $98,000.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the support we’ve received from this community,” said Kyle Davern, manager, Walk to End Alzheimer’s – 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 Alzheimer’s supports local care and support programs available to the community free of charge. It also funds Alzheimer’s and dementia research.
