The Santa Clarita Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place Saturday, Oct. 5, and you’re invited to register and come join the fun. The walk offers participants an opportunity to take a healthy stroll, experience outstanding live entertainment, honor loved ones who have been affected by Alzheimer’s and raise funds to battle the debilitating disease.
“This event is not only a wonderful opportunity to support the fight against Alzheimer’s but also a chance to be entertained, learn about the disease and socialize with others who support the cause as well,” said SCV Walk Chair James Schramm.
The Santa Clarita Walk to End Alzheimer’s, hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association, is scheduled 8:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Bridgeport Park in Valencia. Signup information and more details can be found at http://act.alz.org/scv19 and on the event’s Facebook page: http://tiny.cc/ALZSCV.
“The walk is designed for everyone to be able to participate,” Schramm said. “It’s a little less than 2 miles, so it is more of a ‘healthy stroll.’ This will be fun for the whole family.”
Registration and entertainment starts at 8:00 a.m., so be sure to come early to enjoy the festivities. The whole family can enjoy exhibits, entertainment and snacks, including:
• Local vendors and exhibitors
• Local performers and famous emcee Barrie Eget
• Kids Zone
“We’ll also have lots of information about Alzheimer’s disease, ways to find support for your loved ones if they are affected by Alzheimer’s, and details on how you can help find a cure,” Schramm said. “We’re looking forward to a tremendous crowd and a day of friendship and camaraderie in pursuit of a common cause: Bringing an end to a debilitating disease that has become the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.”
