Walk to End Alzheimer’s

People across Mid-Michigan came together to fight a debilitating disease.

The Greater Michigan Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association hosted its first every Bay City Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

The organization had two goals going into the event: to raise at least $45,000 in donations and to show those affected by the disease they are not alone.

It’s of those that is very isolating because people don’t leave, care givers are their witts end sometimes,” said Kristal Corrion, the event organizer. “The Walk to End Alzheimer’s brings a lot of different folks together throughout the Great bay Lakes region and we’re all here to support each other and show that we’re here to fight the disease together.”

All of the proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
