COLONIE – An annual event in Colonie Saturday brings hundreds of people together in the fight against a mind-robbing disease.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s takes place at The Crossings in Colonie. 

It’s part of the largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research in the world.

Experts say more than six million Americans are living with the disease, and one in three seniors are dying from Alzheimer’s or other dementia.

Money from the walk supports two main goals for the organization.

Saturday’s ceremony starts at 11:30 and the walk immediately follows.

NewsChannel 13’s Faith King is taking part in this event.
