Thousands expected to participate in annual Louisville Walk to End Alzheimer’s Saturday

Louisville area residents will unite to raise awareness and funds to reclaim the future for millions at the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sept. 9.

In 2016, the Louisville Walk to End Alzheimer’s raised over $509,000, contributing to more than $82.5 million raised nationwide for care, support, and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer’s.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants will learn 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.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Great Lawn at the Waterfront Park (231 Witherspoon St.) with the welcome and Promise Garden Ceremony set for 9:45 a.m.
