The Alzheimer’s Association will hold its largest fundraiser of the year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s, this fall, with the Delaware Valley chapter’s Philadelphia event taking place on November 11 at Citizens Bank Park. Check-in is at 9:30 a.m., with a pre-walk program at 10:45 a.m., followed by the two-mile walk at 11 a.m. This is part of the world’s largest annual event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
The walk, presented by Genesis HealthCare and WTXF-TV/FOX 29, will feature live music and entertainment and dozens of sponsor tables loaded with promotional giveaways.
“Our chapter, which provides local programs and services to more than 294,000 people in the Delaware Valley region that are affected by Alzheimer’s or a related disorder and their families, hopes to raise 1.7 million dollars at this year’s walk,” says Kathryn DiSalvo, senior director of special events. “We encourage everyone to sign up and join the fight to realize Alzheimer’s first survivor.”
