One of our region's largest charity walks is coming up this Saturday October 10th.
Carrie Mueller, VP of Development for the local Alzheimer's chapter says they expect nearly four thousand walkers to descend upon Fifth/Third Plaza in downtown Dayton beginning at 8:30 with registration.
"We have what I think is the highlight of the event , the opening ceremonies with some very special guest speakers." says Mueller.
One of those speakers sharing her family's story is Danielle Begley, "My dad was only 58 when we saw the early stages of Alzheimer's, he forgot his wallet at the store three times.. my Mom has now taken the credit cards out of his wallet plus he took one wrong turn the other day in the car and wound up miles away from home.. so he can no longer drive and I worry about my mom, because she hates to leave him so she works from home now .. and feels isolated."
There's still time for you lace up the sneakers and join us this Saturday. just go to their web site for registration information at www.alzdayton.org

About 7 tons of sauerkraut to be exact according to Waynesville Chamber of Commerce member Dawn Schroeder who joined me this week on Update Dayton.
" We don't even give the attendance numbers anymore for fear it will scare people away." Schroeder said.
28 out-of-state vendors (some as far away as California) know this is the premiere fall festival in the Midwest and with the Ohio Renaissance Festival in full swing just down State Route 73 in nearby Harveysburg, it has become a weekend destination for thousands..about 350,000 they estimate through aerial counting technology.
American Made since 1970, the festival will be open Saturday, October 10th from 9am to 8pm and from 9am to 6pm Sunday, October 11th in beautiful Waynesville, Ohio. For information go to www.sauerkrautfestival.com
