The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Texarkana area residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on October 16, 2021, at  Spring Lake Park.

During Walk day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony, a mission-focused experience that signifies solidarity in the fight against the disease. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent people’s connection to Alzheimer’s and their personal reasons to end the disease.

“The Promise Garden ceremony is very moving,” says Jennifer Bowring, Director of Development. “It’s a very colorful and symbolic show of support for the fight against Alzheimer’s.”

"I’m also pleased to announce that KTAL NBC-6 is helping us with emcee duties this year as news anchors Dan and Jacque Jovic fill that role.”

I will be there to represent Townsquare Media for the pre-walk time and looking forward to helping out with this worthwhile cause that affects so many people not only in our community but nationwide.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Spring Lake Park begins at 9:30 PM. Opening ceremonies at 9 AM. Registrants must be on site by 8 AM.

All in-person events will implement safety protocols including physical distancing, contactless registration, hand-sanitizing stations, and more. The Association will continue to closely monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local guidelines to ensure Walk events adhere to recommendations and are safe for attendees.

Per CDC guidelines around crowded outdoor settings, we ask that all Walk attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or wear a mask when in an overcrowded area. Masks will be available on-site.  For those who prefer it, a Walk from the Home option will offer Walk-day experiences through the website and mobile app.
