VNB Community Counts: Walk to End Alzheimer's

August 12, 2011

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the 2011 Walk to End Alzheimer's.

Sue Friedman, President/CEO of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the annual event, which changed names this year.

The 2011 Charlottesville Walk to End Alzheimer's on Sept. 17 will have a new location and new route. The walk will begin at the Albemarle County Office Building on McIntire Road and travel through Downtown Charlottesville.

Online registration is open now on the Alzheimer's Association website. The fundraising goal for the Charlottesville walk is $170,000.

There will also be walks in Roanoke (9/10), Harrisonburg (9/24), Lynchburg (10/1), Danville (10/15), Culpeper (10/22) and Staunton (10/29).
