Aberdeen Walk to End Alzheimer’s
On Sunday, September 24, Aberdeen area residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease at the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® — the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
On Walk day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony — showing our solidarity in the fight against the disease. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent people’s connection to Alzheimer’s — their personal reasons to end the disease. This year’s Aberdeen Walk will take place at Anderson Park. Registration begins at 1:00 p.m. and the Opening Ceremony starts at 2:00 p.m.
In South Dakota alone, there are more than 18,000 people living with the disease and 19,000 caregivers. To register and receive the latest updates on this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, visit alz.org/walk.
