8News is proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Richmond Chapter, in their annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The event is held in more than 600 communities across the nation and it will be back in Richmond this year.
News Anchors Deanna Allbrittin and Eric Philips are hosting the opening ceremony and will MC the walk scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6, in Innsbrook.
Participants can register to walk online and start a team for their family, businesses or friends. Participation is free but walkers are encouraged to raise funds prior to their walk. Those sponsorship donations are used to fund awareness, care and research into the disease that affects millions of Americans.
