MEDINA – The Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be back in Medina on Oct. 13. The Walk is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

On Oct. 13 family members, caregivers, employers, friends and persons with dementia will gather at State Street Park in Medina to honor all impacted by dementia and to fight for a world without Alzheimer’s. Fundraising dollars ensure the Alzheimer’s Association can continue to provide supportive services and education at no cost.

While there is no fee to register, the Alzheimer’s Association of Western New York encourages participants to fundraise to contribute to the cause and help ensure a vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.

The park in Medina offers plenty of parking, space to enjoy snacks and refreshments, visit with vendors, and buy basket and 50/50 raffle tickets. The roughly 2-mile walk offers a pleasant stroll along the Erie Canal. Incentives for fundraising include the 2018 purple Walk T-shirt.

Registration starts at 9 a.m., with a ceremony at 10 and the walk to start at 10:15.
