CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On Saturday, Nov. 2, FOX 46 Charlotte partnered with the Walk to End Alzheimer's Association to get results for the millions of Americans affected by the disease.
We joined thousands to raise money to support of care and research efforts.
The walk began at 10:30 a.m. at BB&T Ballpark. Nearly 4,000 people participated in this year's walk, helping the organization raise a record-breaking amount, more than $661,000, to fund Alzheimer's care, support and research programs. The walk is currently less than $79,000 away from reaching its $740,000 goal. Donations are still being accepted through Dec. 31 at act.alz.org/Charlotte.
The annual walk is held in more than 600 communities across the nation and helps advance the organization's mission to advance Alzheimer's care and treatment, online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives.
