Alzheimer's Association annual fundraising walk set for Sept. 22

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a united movement to reclaim the future for millions. This fall, walks will be held across the country to raise awareness for the 5.4 million people with Alzheimer’s nationwide. The walks are the Association’s signature community involvement events that raise funds to fight Alzheimer’s and provide free programs to assist the 56,000 Northeast Ohioans with the disease.

The second annual West Side Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, at All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an inspiring and community-driven event. Walk participants will enjoy dozens of event festivities throughout the stadium, including a kids zone, and then walk for one or three miles in a unified effort to end Alzheimer’s. The event also serves to educate the community about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment and support programs, and services of the Alzheimer’s Association. Each walker will participate in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease.
