They credited the support from the community with being able to support such a cause.

“We did a bingo to do our fundraiser for walking with wiz and it just meant a lot for us to have the community to come out and support us during that time to help us raise money for our team. to help end Alzheimer’s,” said Staci Parsons.

Many of those who walked today say that they believe events like these can help bring awareness to Alzheimer’s and hopefully find a cure.
