Hundreds of local residents walked “virtually” to raise over $80,000 in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which occurred on Oct. 3. November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.

Walking as individuals or groups, on sidewalks, tracks or greenways across Forsyth County, people came together to support the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association. 

“Many thanks to our Walk participants, volunteers, sponsors and the Winston-Salem community for their hard work and efforts in making this year’s event a success in spite of the obstacles this year has brought to our community,” said Katherine Lambert, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina chapter. “We appreciate everyone creatively taking their own steps against Alzheimer’s disease and to raise critical funds for Alzheimer’s research and local support services.”

Wake Forest Baptist Health – Sticht Center was the top fundraising team. Raising more than $11.700, this is the fourth consecutive year as the top fundraising team for the Winston-Salem Walk. 

“Together, we are showing the 180,000 North Carolina  residents living with Alzheimer’s that we care and we will never give up the fight to end this disease,” said Lambert.

Donations are still being accepted through Dec. 31 at
