The local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association hosted its Jerry Bower Memorial 5K Run/Walk Saturday.
The 5K attracted 20 runners and walkers Saturday. Proceeds from the event went to support research in the field of Alzheimer’s disease.
The top finishers in this year’s 5K were Chris Buntain and Nikol Strother, both of Los Alamos. Buntain finished the race in 22 minutes, 14 seconds, more than five minutes better than runner-up James Keane.
