'Walk to End Alzheimer's' Saturday at Sparks Marina

Posted: Updated:

You can help fight against Alzheimer's this weekend by getting some exercise at the Sparks Marina.

Saturday morning is the ‘Walk to End Alzheimer's'

Channel 2 is a proud sponsor of the event and our very own Kristen Remington is the emcee.

Festivities start at 8am with the walk starting two hours later.

More than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer's in the United States right now. It's the sixth leading cause of death in the nation. And more than 9,000 Northern Nevadans have Alzheimer's disease, a number expected to triple by 2050 to 27,000.
