The Alzheimer's Association, Western New York Chapter, hosts its annual "Walk to End Alzheimer's" starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Artpark, 450 S. Fourth St., Lewiston.
Hundreds of participants are expected to take part in this fundraiser.
A committee of local residents and business and community leaders has been planning the walk for months, helping secure donations of goods and services, recruiting team members and leaders, and promoting the event across the county, while raising awareness about dementia and the WNY Chapter. All registered participants have access to refreshments, entertainment, and basket and 50/50 raffles.
Day-of registration is available from 9-10 a.m., and fundraising can continue through the end of the year to qualify for incentives, which include a purple Walk to End Alzheimer's T-shirt and a gold medal.
