AANCL Walks to end Alzheimer's!

On October 7, the Alzheimer's Association hosted a Walk to End Alzheimer's here in Champaign (for more information about the Champaign walk click here or about the walks in general click here). Members of AANCL walked at the event to show our support for the cause! It was uplifting to see how many people care about ending this disease and hear about what people have done to help those who are suffering because of Alzheimer's. There was a great turnout with 429 participants this year!


Shraddha, FanTing, Stephany, and Lydia walked to support the cause!
