TU hosts Alzheimer's Walk

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas University is hosting an Alzheimer's walk Saturday morning. 

The 12th Annual Dr. Jim Neill Alzheimer's Walk begins at 10 on the Thomasville campus.

Unlike in previous years, all proceeds collected Saturday will stay in the Thomasville area. "We'll have daycare centers in place as well as support groups broadening horizons on what we already have here in the community and financial support for people that need supplies for Alzheimer's patients," said Physician Liaison Rebecca McLane.

The event will include live music, prizes, a silent auction, and a ceremonial balloon release in memory of those who lost their lives to the disease.
