Finding a cure for Alzheimer’s… one step at a time.
Augusta’s ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’ kicked off Monday night at Carolina Ale House. It’s the world’s largest event to raise awareness and money for the disease.
The community came out to sign up for the walk, and Carolina Ale House is donating a portion of Monday night’s profits to the association.
“Out of the top 10 diseases that are fatal, Alzheimer’s in in the top 6, and there is no cure for it,” Pamela Mazur, Event Chair for the Augusta Alzheimer’s Association, told NewsChannel 6. “There is no treatment. Twenty years ago, things that we didn’t have cures for, now have cures. The only way that we are going to get that is by raising money to support research and legislation.”
Last year, the Augusta walk raised more than $85 thousand.
