Locally, the annual Huntington Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be Saturday, Sept. 15, beginning at Pullman Square. Registration begins at 8 a.m., the celebrating begins at 9:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10:15 a.m.

The West Virginia chapter’s 11 annual walks — 10 in West Virginia and one in Athens, Ohio — account for about 75 percent of the chapter’s annual fundraising, executive director Sharon Rotenberry said.
