Walk to End Alzheimer’s
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. On Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to noon, approximately 750 individuals from the greater Genesee County area—family members, caregivers, employers, friends and persons living with dementia—will honor all those impacted by the disease and fight for a world without Alzheimer’s. Premier Genesee Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation at 278 Bank Street in Batavia is hosting the event, which raises funds to ensure the Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter can continue to provide supportive services and education at no cost, while raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and Association services all across the Genesee Valley. While there is no fee to register or participate, we strongly encourage participants to fundraise to contribute to the cause and the Chapter offers a number of tools and materials to help with fundraising.
The Center’s outdoor park offers space to enjoy snacks and refreshments, visit with local vendors, and buy basket and 50/50 raffle tickets, while the roughly 2-mile walk route offers a pleasant stroll through a lovely neighborhood. Register today at alz.org/Walk and start fundraising to earn terrific incentives, including the 2019 purple Walk tee shirt. Please call (716) 626-0600 or 800-272-3900 with any questions.
