Families walk to raise money for Alzheimer’s research in Lindenhurst

The fourth annual National Alzheimer's Walk was held in Lindenhurst Saturday.
Volunteers and family members walked to honor loved ones and support research for the disease.
The walk kicked off at Respite Care Relief Park. Signs placed throughout the area had tips for caregivers and patients to read.
Participants could also purchase a special brick in honor of a loved one. All proceeds went to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
Nikki Adams is a volunteer whose grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She says she wanted to support and help raise awareness for the disease
“The park is really great…it's tranquil for the caregivers as well as the people who suffer from Alzheimer's,” she says.
So far, $60,000 have been raised for the organization worldwide.
Alzheimer's Awareness Month begins on Nov. 1.
