CHICO, Calif. - Hundreds of people walked to end Alzheimer's in Chico on Oct. 12.
Organizers say more than 600 people registered to walk up to three miles and raise money.
They say more than $5 million Americans are living with the disease and it is the sixth leading cause of death.
"I walk every year, I've been involved with seniors and the Alzheimer's community for probably 20 years of my life," said one participant, Diane Skahill. "I love working with seniors and I'm passionate about Alzheimer's and trying to find a cure."
When people finished walking, they got a chance to place a flower cutout in what is called "The Promise Garden Ceremony" to honor those with Alzheimer's.
Organizers say the walk raised more than $100 thousand.
