The third annual Athletes Against Alzheimer’s 5K Run/Walk is set for Aug. 6 on Garfield Parkway and ending at the boardwalk in Bethany Beach.

The 5K will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter.

Michael Loftus, of Loftus Wealth Strategies, a wealth management and financial planning business in Dagsboro, is the event founder.

“The third one will be the charm. We hope to exceed what we raised last year, which was $25,000. If we do that, we will have raised nearly $70,000 in our three-year history. The event funds the treatment, research and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s and their caregivers,” said Loftus. “I challenge runners, sponsors, volunteers, residents and visitors to help us beat our ambitious goal of $25,000. Registration for runners, volunteers and sponsors is open, and together, we will support the work of this important charity and end the vicious disease.”

Produced by Focus Multisports, the flat and scenic 5k run/walk will feature on-course entertainment by DJ Padraig, awards and a post-race party.
