TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Dozens gathered on the west side of Lake Shawnee on Saturday for a good cause.

Walkers laced up their shoes for the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association.

13′S Chris Fisher served as the master of ceremonies, as he has been for the past 16 years.

Six-million people across the country are currently suffering from Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related illnesses, 55,000 of those are right here in Kansas.

Before Saturday’s walk, the walk had raised about half of its $70,000 goal.
