The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Tomah residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® .
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s continues, but instead of hosting a large gathering, the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Tomah.
Time-honored components of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are being replicated. On Walk day, an Opening Ceremony beginning at 9:30 a.m., 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, all delivered to participants' smartphones, tablets and computers. A small group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the iconic Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day at Winnebago Park, 1020 Brandon St., Tomah, to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s. The garden will be on display from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Participants can register, support another walker and get information online at www.alz.org/walk. For questions or assistance, please call 800-272-3900.
