5th Annual Alzheimer's Memory Walk

Over 100 folks showed up Saturday morning to take part in the 5th annual “Walk to End Alzheimer's Disease.” Organizer Stella Montano says each one has their own personal reason for walking.

Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior, but it is not part of the normal aging process. Brian Curtis with the Alzheimer's Association of Nebraska and Wyoming offers some statistics.

For Montano, it was the special moments she hung on to.

Guy Fowler cared for his wife for five years after she developed Alzheimers. For him, it's the memories that are special.

There's no cure for Alzheimers, but Curtis does add this piece of advice.

Over $4500 was raised during the walk.
