BBC Radio Merseyside and the Alzheimer's Society have joined forces for a charity partnership.
The memory walk took place at Aintree Racecourse. The three walks on offer were 2km, 5km and 10km and the event was launched by BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Phina Oruche.
More than 600 people took part in the walk. It was expected that more than £30,000 would be raised for the Alzheimer's Society.
Every person who took part had their own story to tell about how Alzheimer's had affected their family.
The charity partnership will also see BBC Radio Merseyside helping to recruit 100 special people to "befriend" people diagnosed with all forms of dementia.
Families also came together to celebrate the memory of loved ones.
As well as the Memory Walk, other events taking place included a birds of prey show, a tombola and a Panto Horse Grand National
