Pep Rally to kick off Walk to End Alzheimer's

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A pep rally was held Friday at Vino's Pizzeria in downtown Jonesboro to help kick off the annual "Walk to End Alzheimer's".

The walk is scheduled for October 26 on the ASU campus. Sherry Pearce, chairperson of the Alzheimer's Walk said everyone should know the dangers of the disease.

"There are over 60,000 Arkansans who suffer from the disease", said Pearce.  "There is no cure for the disease.  Right now, the walk would help benefit for the research and funding to go toward the cure for this disease."

The event lasted for one hour. Team captains, sponsors and walkers, gathered to enjoy lunch and get ready for a walk they've worked hard to put together.
