Run and walk in La Salle to benefit Alzheimer’s awareness group

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2016

Something that seems like a personality quirk could actually be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease. Peg Gonet and Joanne Milby lost their husbands to the disease and are again organizing the Boo Milby 5K Memorial Run-Walk to raise money for the Illinois Valley Alzheimer’s Group.

The 9th annual run-walk is Saturday in La Salle with the race beginning and ending at Northwest School. The run and walk starts at 8 in the morning with check-in starting at 6:45. It’s $25 to get in the race.

Gonet and Milby say the money stays local to promote Alzheimer’s awareness, educational programs and family services. You can learn more about the group and the run-walk by clicking Boo Milby Run/Walk
