On Saturday, hundreds of people walked to end Alzheimer's at UT Gardens for the 2018 Alzheimer's Tennessee Walk.

The event has been going on for the last 28 years. This year, people could take team photos, enjoy some live music and bring their pets.

Alzheimer's Tennessee works to offer support, education and advocacy for families in East Tennessee who are fighting the disease.

"I definitely hope that one day there will be a cure," Shana Love, one of the walkers, said. "This disease is something that hurts a lot of loved one and until then, we're going to be here. We're going to support. We're going to show up, and we're going to walk and raise money."

UT's Athletics Director Phillip Fulmer and Channel 10's Robin Wilhoit were both in attendance at the event.

Alzheimer's Tennessee will host its next walk at Maryville College on Saturday, April 28. For more information about how you can sign-up for the event, you can go to the Alzheimer's Tennessee website here.
