Alzheimer's Walk Held In Sioux Falls

September 15, 2012, 6:02 PM by Jenna Petrak

Alzheimer's Walk Held In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

One step at a time, people of all ages walked on Saturday morning to find an end to Alzheimer's disease.

On Saturday morning, the Alzheimer's Association of South Dakota held its 23rd annual walk to remember families affected with the disease.

Everyone who came to the event was given a flower, and along the walk, they put that flower into the ground to symbolize the fight together.

Organizers say they were pleased with the turnout.

“We are thrilled. The people come back every year. Families use it as a time to remember their loved ones and be there in support of each other's families. So, it's a great time for them to be together,” Alzheimer’s Association Executive Director Jane Aspaas said.

The Alzheimer's association will also hold walks in Aberdeen and Rapid City later this month.
