Walk to End Alzheimer’s set for Oct. 23

By Staff | Oct 9, 2021

The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Lee County residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. On Walk day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony – a mission-focused experience that signifies their solidarity in the fight against the disease. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent participants’ connections to Alzheimer’s disease and their personal reasons for walking.

The Lee County Walk to End Alzheimer’s will kick off with an Opening Ceremony at 9 a.m. on Oct. 23 at Centennial Park in Fort Myers.
