BANGOR - More than 600 people gathered today, hitting the pavement to stand together for a cause
Alzheimer's disease is a terrible illness that causes memory loss, mood swings, stress, and eventually leads to death.
Today a walk was held raising money for a 24/7 help line, support groups, and education.
Organizers of the event say it was refreshing to see the amount of supporters.
This year's walk well exceeded it's goal, raising over $107,000 for the Alzheimer's association.
