United to end Alzheimer's


The Andover Townsman

---- — People, many clad in purple, took to the Andover streets this weekend to show their support for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is actually several walks in various locations, and it includes a walk in Andover that begins at Brickstone Square off York Street in the Shawsheen area of town.

The event came to Andover in 2008, and until recently was known as the Memory Walk. Many walkers carry fabric flowers with a message to a loved one, which they “plant” in a garden as part of the event.
