KIMT-TV 3 – Walk to End Alzheimer’s events in Albert Lea and Mason City raise over $70,000 to fight the disease and aid its victims.

The inaugural Albert Lea walk took place September 23 and organizers say over 300 people took part. Debby Eddy of the Alzheimer’s Association of Southern Minnesota says the “results are just so overwhelming as well as humbling, the Albert Lea and surrounding communities have embraced our cause and truly want the best quality of care for those struggling with dementia and they want a cure, that’s why so much money was raised today, Albert Lea cares and wants to provide hope!”

More than $41,000 was raised at the Albert Lea event.

Mason City hosted it’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s this past Saturday. Organizers say about 300 people participated and raised over $30,000.
