If you don’t know or love someone with Alzheimer’s yet…just wait.
Alzheimer’s is epidemic and growing faster than our population is aging.
It’s the only one of the top 10 killer diseases in America with no cure or treatment.
If you would like to be part of a world without Alzheimer’s, then join us at the West Side Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
The West Side Walk is September 21st at All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon (home to the Lake Erie Crushers) on Routes I-90 and 611. The activity begins at 8:30am, the interactive Opening Ceremony at 9:30, and the 3 mile walk (or 1 mile option) at approximately 9:45. Those who want to show their support but cannot walk can watch from the stands. You’ll be home for lunch after a beautiful morning walk in the ballpark!
The festivities include a Kid Zone with special take-home projects thanks to Home Depot, a balloon clown, jugglers from Saint Ignatius Circus Company & more. Leading the walkers will be the Amherst HS drumline, with local Avon & Avon Lake cheerleaders, a samba/Latin percussion group & more along the walk routes. Coffee, donuts and Yala’s pizza will be available for walkers to purchase before and after the event.
With more than 800 walkers last year, the Walk is growing into a great community event for Lorain County & the west side of Cleveland. All proceeds go to the Alzheimer’s Association…won’t you join us this year??
Plan on a great Saturday morning walk, and help us fight Alzheimer’s .
