BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Hundreds gathered at Lindley Park on Saturday morning to walk in an effort to end Alzheimer's.

Organizers tell us they estimate 250 people showed up to the walk. We met many people there who either know someone who is dealing with or has lost a loved one to Alzheimer's.

Walks are held across the nation, and this is the seventh year the event has been held in Bozeman. We are told the money raised today will go to research.

"So many people are affected every day and every year so we are just trying to get the word out that Alzheimer's does not have a cure. We want to raise as much money as we can to find a cure," said Tony Marchi.

In terms of raising money they are certainly well on their way to reaching their goal this year. Organizers tell NBC Montana that as of Saturday morning they had raised more than 28,000 dollars. This is not too far from their goal of 31,500 dollars.
