MINNEAPOLIS -- Thousands of people gathered at Target Field Saturday for the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
The annual event raises awareness about the disease as well as funds to further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Last year, the Minneapolis walk raised $1.2 million and was the fourth-largest of 600 walks around the country.
The event kicked off at 9 a.m. with a ceremony in Target Field before participants set out for a one-mile or three-mile walk. KARE 11's Karla Hult and Cory Hepola emceed the event.
