Over 1,200 Lincoln residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease at the 2017 Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s to be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at Holmes Lake Park.
In 2016, Lincoln raised over $184,000, contributing to more than $70 million raised nationwide for care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer's.
In addition to walking, participants will enjoy live entertainment, free food from Runza, and interaction with the following event sponsors: Runza, Alpha Media, KLKN-TV, Carpetland, CountryHouse Residences, Legacy Retirement Communities – The Arbors, and Stanley Healthcare, among others.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Participants will learn more 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 beginning at 11 a.m. and opening ceremonies at 12:30 p.m. precede the 1 p.m. walk.
