Over 400 gather for Liver Life Walk

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A simple stroll at Sawyer Point could be the difference in helping improve the lives of 30 million Americans with liver disease.

The American Liver Foundation's annual Liver Life Walk Cincinnati was held Sunday morning at Sawyer Point. Approximately 400 residents gathered to support the American Liver Association.

The two-mile route along the riverside kicked off at the Purple People Bridge at 10:00 Sunday morning.

The event included snack stations, games, trivia and a raffle.

Participants walked to help the 30 million American with liver disease. Liver disease affects one in every 10 Americans. Symptoms are often silent for years, but diagnosis for many common types of liver disease can be done with a simple blood test. Early diagnosis leads to earlier treatments and cures.
