Walk to end Alzheimer’s Saturday

Posted: November 1, 2017 - 1:14am

Hundreds are expected to attend the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's in partnership with the Alzheimer's Association.

The public is welcome and invited to attend the annual walk at the Columbia County Amphitheater in Evans on Saturday.

Registration begins at 10 a.m., opening ceremony at 11 a.m. and the walk begins at 11:30 a.m.

In 2016 the Augusta walk raised more than $75,000, contributing to more than $2.2 million raised in Georgia for care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer's, according to a news release from the Alzheimer's Association.

The walk is the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research.

Participants will learn more about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services.

Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

Register today. Sign up as a Team Captain, join a team or register to walk as an individual at georgiawalk.org.
