Fort Wayne’s Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Memory Walk® will take place on Saturday, September 8th in Fort Wayne at Foster Park Pavilions 1 and 2 – registration begins at 11:00 and the Walk begins at Noon. Nearly 1,000 people across the Fort Wayne area are expected to participate in this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Walk, nationally presented by Genworth Financial, is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research programs. Held annually in hundreds of communities across the country, this inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become Champions in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Champions include those living with the disease, families, caregivers, and corporate and community leaders. Americans who have participated in these walks have raised more than $200 million.
