Running race and walk to benefit a local Alzheimer’s support group

Posted by wlpo on August 3, 2014

Something that seems like a personality quirk could be a sign of Alzheimer’s Disease.   Peg Gonet and Joanne Milby are active with the Illinois Valley Alzheimer’s Group. Every year they hold the Boo Milby 5K Memorial Run-Walk to raise money for the support group.

The run-walk is Saturday, August 16 in La Salle. In addition to the race there are a three-mile walk and one-mile walk. Teams and groups are encouraged to participate in the shorter walk. Registration is $20 in advance or $25 the day of the race.

You can learn more about the group and the run-walk by listening to an interview that’s up at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
