Michiana Walk to End Alzheimer’s event set for September 19
MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter will host the Michiana Walk to End Alzheimer’s event at Central Park in Mishawaka on September 19.
Though the event will be held in person this year, participants can still choose to “walk from home” in local neighborhoods.
All in-person activities will be held outside with safety protocols in place, including physical distancing, contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations, and more.
Masks are welcome and will be available at the event.
“We’re glad to be back in person this year because coming together in the fight against Alzheimer’s and dementia is so meaningful to our volunteers and participants,” said Abby Geha, manager, Michiana Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
During the event, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the Promise Garden ceremony. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent people’s personal reasons to end Alzheimer’s.
Funds raised through the Walk support Alzheimer’s Association research and programs.
Registration on the day of the event begins at 1 p.m., followed by the Promise Garden ceremony at 2 p.m. and the Walk at 2:15 p.m.
