Walk to End Alzheimer’s Hits the Streets This Fall

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. 4, with the option to join virtually. 

Open to all ages, participants are invited to don their purple attire and stroll two miles through North Little Rock to help raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to provide care and support to more than 58,000 Arkansans living with Alzheimer’s and 154,000 caregivers.

“We’re closer than ever to stopping Alzheimer’s,” says Ian Shuttleworth, manager of the Central Arkansas Walk to End Alzheimer’s. “We hope that everyone in our community can join us by starting a team to help the Alzheimer’s Association raise awareness and funds for families facing the disease today, take more steps toward treatments and finally ending this disease.”

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.
