William Pitt Sotheby\u2019s International Realty announced Tuesday, Oct. 10, that the firm\u2019s Ridgefield brokerage will be participating in the Alzheimer\u2019s Walk for a Cure in New York City on Oct. 28, 2017. Ridgefield agent Liza Bortz has organized a team that will walk and fundraise to raise awareness for Alzheimer\u2019s care, support and research. According to the Alzheimer\u2019s Association, Alzheimer\u2019s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and more than five million Americans are currently living with the disease. \u201cUnfortunately we all know people who have been personally affected by the disease,\u201d said Bortz. \u201cAfter the loss of my father, I became very passionate to help find a cure for Alzheimer\u2019s disease. I thank all participants and donors for their continued support in helping us to reach our team goal, and we are all looking forward to the event later this month.\u201d Registration for the walk begins at 8:30 a.m. at South Street Seaport, Pier 17 in Manhattan on Saturday, Oct. 28.
