Hundreds of Sarasota/Manatee County residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease at the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in beautiful Sarasota/Manatee this Saturday. This is a family- and pet-friendly event. Two-time CMA Award nominee, Lulu from 92.1 CTQ will welcome participants during the opening ceremony and will serve as emcee for the Walk. Several families affected by Alzheimer’s will also be part of the opening ceremony. “Since its inception in 2003, the Roskamp Institute has been focused on finding the causes of and discovering potential treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, while offering support for caregivers,” says Megan Micale, project manager for the Roskamp Institute. “We fundraise to raise awareness for the collective missions of Alzheimer’s Association and Roskamp Institute, to continue to strive for a cure through research.” Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Participants will learn more about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services. Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony. Register today. Sign up as a Team Captain, join a team or register to walk as an individual at alz.org/walk.
