EUGENE, Ore. -- The community gathered at Alton Baker Park Sunday to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Organizers said about 800 people registered to walk and show their support for the cause.

They said over $120,000 dollars was raised to fund research for the disease.

Walk Director, Kara Griffey said there's nothing like seeing the community come together to show their support.

"There's nothing like it,” Griffey said. “I think that sometimes this disease can be seen as hopeless and an event like today gives it hope. It really makes people aware of it and there's nothing like coming out and seeing that people are so supportive and that when we're all part of something really big, we can get a lot done if we work together."
