Approx. 400 people "Walk to End Alzheimer's"

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A bit chilly out Saturday morning, but some 400 members of our community didn't care.

They braved the cold to participate in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's disease can lead to severe memory loss, and affects roughly 5 million people in the U.S. alone.

The walk was 2 miles, and was meant to raise awareness about the disease.

News 19's Heather Armstrong emceed the event's opening ceremony.

Awards were also handed out at the end for this year's top fundraisers.
