BELLA VISTA, AR-- Athletes spent their Saturday riding, swimming, and running this morning to raise awareness for Alzheimer's.

The annual "Memory Maker" triathlon kicked off this morning at London Park in Bella Vista. More than 100 people did the swim, bike and run, including our own Rebecca Jeffrey! It's not just the money that helps the Alzheimer's association.

Susan Neyman, executive director of the Arkansas Alzheimer's Association said, "More importantly it brings greater awareness to the association and the services that we provide, because there's not anybody who hasn't been touched or have a family member or friend who has a need for some of our services."

The organization's "Walk to End Alzheimer's" will be held in September.
