KANNAPOLIS – More than 600 people joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Rowan Cabarrus Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the N.C. Research Campus on Saturday. Participants raised over $55,000 to fund Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs.

“We want to thank our walk participants, volunteers, sponsors and the Rowan and Cabarrus County communities for the amazing support in helping fight Alzheimer’s disease and making this year’s Walk a big success,” said Katherine L. Lambert, CEO of the Western Carolina Chapter. “Our Walks are a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together to take steps for Alzheimer’s disease and raise funds for Alzheimer’s research and local support services.”

Sigma Kappa Theta Mu was the top fundraising team at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, raising $9,666. The other top fundraising teams included Love Is Not Forgot ($3,638) and Brookdale Concord Parkway ($3,560).

Added Lambert, “Hats off to our top teams for their stellar fundraising efforts. Together, we are showing the more than 5,700 people estimated to be living with Alzheimer’s in Rowan and Cabarrus Counties that we care and we will never give up in the fight to end this disease.”
