Efforts mobilize for October's Walk to End Alzheimer's


WILLMAR -- Organizers of a Walk to End Alzheimer's Oct. 1 in Willmar hope to raise several thousand dollars for research and services. But more than this, they want to increase local awareness of a disease whose incidence continues to rise.

A national campaign launched Wednesday for the Walk to End Alzheimer's, which will be held in towns across the U.S. this fall. All told, millions of dollars are expected to be raised.
