Five million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer's disease - 210,000 in Ohio. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the nation and is a disease that still has no cure.

On Oct. 10, some local kids will Rock the Walk for ALZ at Fifth Third Field in Dayton.  Anne Potter is the founder of the Camps Rock mobile app we told you about earlier this year.  She’s also the organizer behind Kids Rock the Walk and we talked to her about it this excerpt from WYSO Weekend. You'll also here from two kids who have been affected by ALZ.

Registration in time for team t-shirts ends on Wednesday, Oct. 1, though registration to walk without official t-shirts continues to event time. More information about the event can be found at the CapsRock website and Facebook.
