Hundreds of people also enjoyed the nice weather outside the state Capitol for a good cause on Sunday. They took part in the Walk To End Alzheimer's Sunday afternoon.

Organizers tell us the massive support is bittersweet.

"It's exciting that everyone is here, but it shows us that Alzheimer's is effecting more and more people. All generations, you see grandparents, you see grandkids,' said Jill Clouser, chair of Lansing Walk To End Alzheimer's event. "We're all dealing with this in one way, shape or form. We need the support, we need the recognition so that we get the dollars we need to start looking for a cure."

The walk is one of the Alzheimer Association's biggest events, raising awareness and funds for treatment and research.
