On Saturday, Oct. 10, Michigan City residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease at the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. The funds raised support the care, support, and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Walk will take place on sidewalks, tracks, and trails as participants walk as individuals, families or small teams.
On Walk day, an online Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. A Promise Garden to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s will be created in a “view only” format on Walk day. Below is the schedule of events.
