Hundreds of South Central Kentucky residents gathered at Circus Square Park for a good cause over the weekend.
The Alzheimer's Association hosted the Walk to End Alzheimer's event Saturday morning at Circus Square Park in Bowling Green. The annual walk aims to unite the community to raise funds and awareness in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Support at the event included WKU cheerleaders and two mascot greats Big Red and Roscoe of the Hot Rods. Event organizers believe that the growth of the event is due to the overwhelming support of the community.
"You know it's a great way to help our community. There are so many people affected with Alzheimer's and we are always looking for new folks to join our committee to help plan this event every year," said Leigh Mooneyhan, co-chair of the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
Over $70,000 has been raised to date, but you can still get involved. Visit act.alz.org to learn more about the walk and how you can participate.
