Barrington student raises $7K for Alzheimer’s

BARRINGTON, R.I. (WLNE) — A Barrington High School student raised $7,000 for Alzheimer’s research this weekend.

Leo Caldarella, a senior at Barrington High School, raised the money in honor of his grandmother, who was recently diagnosed.

Caldarella organized a team of 42 for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Providence.

“We have seen, firsthand, the effects of Alzheimer’s and the cognitive decline is causes,” said Caldarella.
