The Charlotte Walk to End Alzheimer’s brought 2,250 people to Truist Field on Saturday, October 22nd. The event’s activities were emceed by our own Ramona Holloway from MIX 107.9’s “Matt and Ramona” morning show and Tara Lane and Ann Wyatt Little from Queen City News.  All three chose to  participate because of their own personal connections to Alzheimer’s.

Matt Harris took over microphone duties for the finish line festivities.  He was joined by members of the Queen’s University baseball team in cheering on Alzheimer’s Association supporters and walkers who’d lost loved ones to dementia, people caring for dementia patients and even walkers who are living with Alzheimer’s or another form of the disease.

Over $580,000 has been raised so far by Charlotte Walk volunteers. Donations toward their $910,000 goal will be accepted through Dec. 31
