CHICAGO (WLS) --On September 25, 2016, the Alzheimer's Association invites you to join their Walk to End Alzheimer's at Montrose Harbor in Chicago. Thousands of people are expected to attend the event, which raises money and awareness to fight Alzheimer's disease. The Walk to End Alzheimer's features a 3.1 mile walk and a tribute ceremony to honor those affected by the disease. Currently, more than 220,000 Illinois Residents are living with Alzheimer's.
