The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at The Battery at SunTrust Park in Atlanta. Nearly 3,000 people from Atlanta and surrounding areas are expected at this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
On Walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden Ceremony – a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s.
In addition to the 3-mile walk, participants have the option to take part in a 2-mile walk and will enjoy the Battery and its many restaurants after the walk.
More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In Georgia alone, there are more than 150,000 people living with the disease and 533,000 caregivers.
Participants can join a team or register to walk as an individual at alz.org/walk.
