OAK HILL -- The yard sale took place all day today to raise money for the Alzheimers Association Chairty Walk that is taking place next month. After the event is over, every penny will benefit the Walk to End Alzheimers.
The yard sale is helping support one team in particular. But instead of walking to honor a loved one, the team will be remembering Granny Chris.
Dr. Cassandra Ortiz, a member of Team Granny Chris, says that “Granny Chris was my grandmother and my mom's mom, she suffered from Alzheimer's for over 10 years. We lost her in October of last year, this will be the 1st year we walk in her memory, instead of honor.”
The walk is scheduled for September 13th at the Beckley-Raleigh convention center.
