More than 430 residents participated in this year’s 7th annual Humboldt County Walk to End Alzheimer’s on October 8th. Opening ceremonies were held in the Adorni Center and then participants walked around Halverson Park and through Old Town, raising more than $102,000.  Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

According to Walk Co-Chair Bonnie Neely, “We are grateful to our returning teams, our new teams, and all the local businesses that support the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association.”  Kelly Sanders, Walk Co-Chair, added, “Countless families will benefit from the dollars and awareness raised. The money will provide care and support for those with Alzheimer’s’ and other dementias as well as fund research projects that will one day eradicate this disease.”
