Walk to End Alzheimer's event coming in Sept.

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A kickoff event took place at St. Bernards auditorium in Jonesboro on Wednesday to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and promote the upcoming Alzheimer's walk.

Chairman Zachary Hatley said they need all of Region 8 to get on board and help them make a difference.

“It's something that like at any time you don't know when you could be effected or a loved one,” said Hatley. “Every bit of awareness. Every time somebody signs up to walk or they put on purple you've made a movement in the direction to find a cure.”

The 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place on Sept. 26.
