Walk to End Alzheimer’s in West Palm Beach

Walk to End Alzheimer’s in West Palm Beach

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is a nationwide event meant to bring awareness to Alzheimer’s disease and to raise funding for future research and patient care. Many places across the nation organize the walk, bringing thousands of participants and raising millions of dollars each year. The walk started in 1989 with just over a thousand participants, raising around $149,000. In 2015, the walk was organized in over 600 communities, raising over $75 million. [1] The event occurs each year in different communities and on different dates depending on the city.

Many people and organizations fund raise for the event by organizing various events throughout the year. Each participant is expected to register on walking day and to contribute a personal donation. Please consider participating in the walk as the proceeds will all go great causes committed to bettering millions of people’s lives.

ElderCare at Home and the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center will be participating in this year’s walk in West Palm Beach on October 8th, 2016 at 8 a.m. The event will be held at CityPlace. Come wearing proper walking attire like tennis shoes and exercise clothes. Although drinks and snacks will be provided, you should also bring a refillable bottle for water to hydrate yourself.
