150 people pound the pavement at Alzheimer's walk

Posted: Updated:
More than 150 people walked to raise money and bring awareness to Alzheimer’s disease. 

Alzheimer’s North Carolina held a walk at Vidant Edgecombe Hospital in Tarboro.

The event featured a walk, music, and corn hole.

Saturday’s event raised about $6,000 for the organization.

Alzheimer’s NC Development Director, Richard Hiatt, says all the money raised at events like this stay in our state.  Hiatt say money goes to Alzheimer’s research and to help the families who have a loved one dealing with the disease.

"What we do with our money is support families and give them all the education that we can to help them out," said Hiatt. 

    
9 On Your Side Anchor Jeff Varner lent his voice and feet to Saturday’s walk.
