Thank you to the many supporters of the Chatham County Walk & 5K benefiting Alzheimer’s NC last Saturday. We raised dollars, awareness and advocacy for the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. We estimate approximately $21,200 raised this year for the Alzheimer’s Campaign for Chatham County. We are still accepting donations till the end of the month of September.

Runners & Walkers: Pdfs with the overall and final awards for the event are included on this site. Please share with others you know. If you notice a discrepancy please don’t hesitate to contact me.
