This morning at Preston Miller Park more than 800 people walked in support of those with Alzheimer's.

The chairperson said it's the largest fundraiser event of the year for Alzheimer's research, family caregiver education and the 24-hour help line that helps those involved with the disease.

The goal was to raise $68,000 and they passed it with more than $70,000.

"I'm the owner of Home Instead Senior Care and we take care of people every day that have Alzheimer's and we've seen firsthand the devastating effects this disease can have on, not only the person with Alzheimer's, but with their families. So that's why me and my company get involved with this every year," said Brad Cannon, the chairperson for the event.

Cannon encourages those who have never participated in the walk to do it next year.

WKU Cheerleaders, Boy Scouts and local singers were also there to show their support.
