From CDT staff reportsOctober 17, 2013 

— Penn State men’s basketball coach Patrick Chambers will speak at the opening ceremony of the “The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's” on Saturday.

Chambers will also walk in the event in rememberance of his father, John “Rube” Chambers. Chambers and his wife Courtney started “Team Rube” last summer and will participate in the walk for the second-consecutive year. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. with festivities beginning at 9:45 a.m. and the walk starting at 10 a.m.

“This clearly is a cause, which hits very close to home,” Chambers said. “My father was a truly tremendous man and in his memory, my wife and I pledge a continued commitment to raising funds for research and to bringing awareness of this disease.”
