The 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer's.

The 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

There’s nothing like the refreshed and invigorated feeling you get after a good walk, unless you add in the feeling accomplishment of walking for a good cause! The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is September 18 at the Peterson Activity Center, and it’s a great way to get some physical activity, while working towards a great cause.

 

There is no registration fee, so click here to start or join a team today! You can also register by calling 1-800-272-3900, or you can register the day of the Walk at 5:30 p.m.

 

The day of the Walk will be action-packed. Gene Curtis from KRVN will be MCing and Stormy and the UNK women’s basketball team will be out mingling with the crowds. There will be games for kids (or those of us who are just giant 27-year-old kids) and some great raffle prizes, including a Storm jersey, UNK sports season pass, restaurant gift certificates, and so much more!

 

In addition, there will be Alzheimer’s information available to help anyone who’s impacted by Alzhimer’s disease, from people who have it to people whose loved ones have it to people who are professional caregivers. Plus, the Promise Garden ceremony is always a beautiful piece that you won’t want to miss. Last year, I couldn’t count how many people were tearing up; it was so touching.

The Promise Garden ceremony is always an awesome and touching part of the Walk.

If you don’t want to walk, you can find the Kearney Walk and donate online, but I hope to see you out there! Last year we had people from age 1 to 100, and we made the trek on a beautiful evening.
