Alzheimer's Walk In Longview

It was an indoor celebration of the 12th annual 'Paint the Town Purple Alzheimer's Walk' in Longview. Rain forced the event inside.  The Alzheimer's Alliance hosted the walk on the campus of Letourneau University. More than 200 people attended.

Proceeds will go to support funding for the new Project Lifesaver program. It's a tracking system for Alzheimer's victims who wander away. 100 % of the money raised will stay in Northeast Texas to help Alzheimer's families in 16 counties.
