Nearly 5.5 million Americans live with Alzheimer's disease, and on Sunday morning, thousands of people were up and on the move to raise money to fight the disease.

The three-mile Walk to End Alzheimer's is intended to raise awareness along with the funds.

In addition to the walk at Montrose Harbor, there are five other walks scheduled over the next few weeks in the suburbs to support the cause.
