Radio personality is honorary chair for Walk to End Alzheimer’s


Alzheimer’s disease is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States today. That sobering fact hits close to home for WJJY morning radio host Ken Thomas, who lost his father to the disease last spring.

Thomas and his four sisters will serve as the honorary chair family for the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sept. 24 at Brainerd’s Kiwanis Park.
