The Wichita Walk to End Alzheimer’s is this month, and there is still time to get involved. You can join us on the Wichita Presbyterian Manor team. Or you can show your support even without even taking a step, by donating money or volunteering to help at the event.
The Wichita event is Saturday, Oct. 21, at WaterWalk. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. There is a ceremony at 11 a.m., and then the walk begins. The route is 2.4 miles.
The overall goal for the Wichita walk is to raise $194,755. The money will help the Alzheimer’s Association provide much needed care and support to people affected by the disease as well as fund critically needed Alzheimer’s research.
Alzheimer’s disease is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. In Kansas alone, 51,000 people live with Alzheimer’s. For more information or to make a donation, visit alz.org/walk.
