RiversidePark, West 97th Street & Riverside Drive in Manhattan

The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter is now recruiting walkers, supporters and volunteers for its 24th annual Walk To End Alzheimer’s.  This year’s two-mile fundraising walk will attract more than 5,000 walkers to scenic RiversidePark (West 97th Street & Riverside Drive) on the morning of Sunday, October 20, 2013.  Bill Ritter of WABC-TV will serve as emcee.  The Walk is expected to raise funds for vital programs and services offered by the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, advancing important research into better treatments and a possible cure, and helping to increase public awareness about the disease and its impact on our community.

To register, visit alznyc.org/walk or call the 24-hour helpline at 800-272-3900.

Walkers who raise money are eligible for gifts such as shirts, ties, and bracelets from the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. 

Walkers can register on-site, but are strongly urged to register in advance.

The Walk has something to offer the whole family, with live entertainment, a “Kid’s Korner” activity area for children, and a Doggie Dugout for the four-legged walkers.  A special “Memory Wall” will be constructed in Riverside Park where Walk participants can post mementos, messages or photos of someone in their lives they have cared for, or who is currently affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

TO REGISTER, BECOME AN OFFICIAL EVENT SPONSOR, VOLUNTEER OR MAKE A DONATION: Call the 24-hour helpline at 800-272-3900 or e-mail [email protected] or visit alznyc.org/walk.
