A sea of purple is coming to Argenta.
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's will once again be held in Argenta Plaza on Saturday, Nov. 5, with the option to join virtually.
Open to all ages, participants are invited to don their purple attire and stroll North Little Rock to help raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association's efforts to provide care and support to the nearly 60,000 Arkansans living with Alzheimer's.
"With help from our community, we can continue to accelerate and advance research and one day realize a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia," says executive director Kirsten Dickins.
The 2021 event was the biggest in years, raising more than $130,000 through 500 participants both in person and virtually through the mobile app. This year's event looks to top that.
"We are excited about building on the success of last year’s walk. We expect to have more people, more teams, more booths and more fun," says board member Keith Collins. "In the end, we look forward to raising funds to fund Alzheimer’s research. We smashed our goal last year, and we look forward to smashing our new goal this year."
The Promise Garden opening ceremony begins at 10 a.m. with participants carrying flowers signifying how they have been affected by Alzheimer's and their promise to remember and fight for those living with the disease.
There is no registration fee for the walk, but all participants are encouraged to fundraise for and donate to the Alzheimer's Association in the process.
