Alzheimer's disease may be incurable, but members of the Alzheimer's Association hope that changes one day.
And association members plan to do their part, raising money from the 3rd Annual Memory Walk on Oct. 6 at Bonita Lakes.
Participants will walk to honor or memorialize those touched by the disease. People and teams are finding sponsors for the event to raise money for Alzheimer's research and education.
Dobrosky said 88 percent of the money raised from the Memory Walk will stay in Mississippi.
Registration for the walk will begin at 8:15 a.m. Oct. 6. Participants will either walk a three-mile course or a one-mile "fun walk." Warm-up exercises are scheduled to begin 30 minutes after registration.
If people don't want to register at the event, they can preregister Tuesday from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. at the East Central Branch Office of the Alzheimer's Association at the Rush Senior Health Center, 5009 Highway 493.
The Alzheimer's Association is the only national volunteer health organization dedicated to research causes, treatments and prevention of the disease. The organization also provides education and support to Alzheimer's patients, families and care-givers.
For more information about the association or the Memory Walk, call Dobrosky at 483-4720 or 484-6180.
