The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs. Across Western New York, there are six such Walks scheduled, including Sept. 27 in Batavia. The approximately two-mile walk starts and ends at the Genesee County Nursing Home on Bank Street.

The Genesee County Walk Committee was invaluable in enlisting the support of local businesses through sponsorships and basket raffle donations, and helping promote the walk within the towns and villages.
