The event, which attracts hundreds of participants to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease, will look different this year.

On Walk day, an Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, all delivered to participants' smartphones, tablets and computers.
To register and receive the latest updates on this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, visit: act.alz.org/bloomington.
