“Alzheimer’s has the ability to impact each and everyone of us, as it not only takes its toll on the victim, but also the caregivers and families whose lives are forever impacted,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

“I am extremely proud to serve as the Walk Emcee for this year’s event. I strongly believe that it takes a community to protect a community. Together we can find a cure and one day celebrate Alzheimer’s first survivor.”
