8News proudly partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Richmond Chapter, in their annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The event is held annually in more than 600 communities across the nation.
News Anchors Deanna Allbrittin and Eric Philips are hosted the opening ceremony for the walk on for Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022 in Henrico.
Participants had the chance to start a team for their family, businesses or friends. Participation was free but walkers were 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.
