INDIANAPOLIS — More than 4,000 Indiana residents joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and united in a movement to reclaim the future for millions at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Sat., Sept. 30. Participants — some attending from as far as Terre Haute and Fort Wayne — raised more than $730,000 to fund Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs, and donations are still being collected.
To date, participants have raised 70 percent of the Alzheimer’s Association goal to raise $1 million at the 2017 Indianapolis Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Indiana’s largest walk, and the 14th-largest in the nation, which will help fund caregiver support and Alzheimer’s disease research for Hoosiers affected by this disease.
Team The Crook Family received the Top Community Team Award, raising more than $15,000. They, along with several other award winners, were recognized for their support during an opening ceremony.
