TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Folks in Terre Haute took time to take on a devastating disease.

Tuesday was the Walk to End Alzheimer's leadership luncheon at Westminster Village in Terre Haute.

Business and community leaders showed up with the goal to expand the conversation about Alzheimer’s among the elderly.

Organizers say the disease affects more than just the victims.

"For every one person impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, there are entire families, businesses and community resources impacted as well,” said Anne Murray, director of Development for Alzheimer’s Association. “So this is something that matters to everybody."

A Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place in September.
