ABILENE, Texas - Nearly 500 people walked for a cure for Alzheimer's Saturday morning at Oscar Rose Park.
The Alzheimer's Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness about the disease.
Some people walked for a loved one living with the disease. Others walked for a loved one that died from the disease. The overall goal was the same: to find a cure.
One man walked with his entire family in honor of his father who is living with Alzheimer's.
"It's a horrible disease and you just, you watch your loved ones suffer with but there's no cure," Andy Williams said. "That's why we're here, to raise money to try to put an end to it."
As of Saturday afternoon the walk had already raised $62,000. The goal is to raise $75,000.
