    Discussing the 2016 Walk To End Alzheimer's with Tim Wendt, Financial Advisor for Edward Jones in Fort Worth, and Sarah Duncan, Honorary Co-Chair of Walk to End Alzheimer’s. (Published Tuesday, July 19, 2016)

    NBC 5 and the Alzheimer’s Association North Central Texas Chapter invite you to lace up your running shoes and sign up for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. More than 4,900 participants in North Texas get involved to raise awareness in hopes of ending Alzheimer’s.

    Funds raised locally will help initiatives of care, support and research available to more than 48,000 residents in our area currently living with the nation’s sixth leading cause of death. Participants will have the opportunity to get involved with the cause by learning more about the support programs and services offered locally, as well as take part in a meaningful ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

    So, bring your family, friends and a smile and join a team at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s!
