Caroline Burnette, center, is shown walking with two friends Saturday morning around the Bulloch Academy track in the annual Walk to End Alzheimers event. Burnette, a sophomore at Georgia Southern University majoring in public relations and minoring in child and family development, was recently named Miss International City at a pageant in Warner Robins.
For the past several months, Jo Ann Hickman, Cendra Brown and a small army of volunteers have worked tirelessly on raising funds and making people aware about Bulloch County’s Ninth Annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. As the clouds rolled in Saturday morning and some raindrops began to fall, Brown was afraid the crowd gathering at the Bulloch Academy track wouldn’t be able to actually walk due to deteriorating weather conditions. But then, perhaps, Brown received a sign that the rains would hold off and would have little effect on the charity event so close to her heart.
