Channel 3 will be partnering with the Connecticut Alzheimer’s Association on its Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Rentschler Field on Sunday, Oct. 1.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an annual nationwide event. It is the largest alzheimer’s awareness fundraising event in the world. Between September and October there will be seven walks in the state of Connecticut.
According to the Connecticut Alzheimer’s Association website, its mission is “to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia though the promotion of brain health.”
Funds raised from the walks benefit alzheimer’s care, support and research.
