Fayetteville, N.C. — The Fayetteville SwampDogs were proud and honored to have helped make the 2016 Walk To End Alzheimer’s one to remember for our community. The annual fundraising event was located at our own JP Riddle Stadium (The Swamp) and served as one of the sites where members of the surrounding area came together in the valiant effort to help end Alzheimer’s disease. Special thanks to all of this year’s participants! The SwampDogs are proud to be a part of this wonderful community. Visit act.alz.org to learn more about the organization.
