The community is invited to participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in a special way.
This year there will be no no large crowds, no open areas with tents and displays, but a hybrid of live on-line and physical walking in small groups or solo, in neighborhoods, on walking trails, wherever people want to wave the Alzheimer’s flag and walk.
“This year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be everywhere,” said Wendy Vizek, vice president, constituent events at the Alzheimer’s Association. “The pandemic is changing how we walk, but it doesn’t change the need to walk. This year, more than ever, we need to come together to support all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia. With the dollars raised, the Alzheimer’s Association can continue to provide care and support to families during these difficult times while also advancing critical research toward methods of treatment and prevention.”
The Walks are the single largest fundraising activity for the Alzheimer’s Association, with over 600 walks taking place nationwide and 38 of them in Texas.
Participants can use the app “Walk Mainstage” to track their steps and distance and follow a virtual walking path.
