Why I Walk: Brotherly rivalry to raise funds for Alzheimer's research

SAN ANTONIO – According to the Alzheimer’s Association, someone in the United States develops the disease every 65 seconds.

There are more than 5 million Americans currently living with the disease.

That’s why the organization is hosting its annual  Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
