Join the Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Saturday, Sept. 7

The Alzheimer’s Association is fighting hard against the disease, providing a 24/7 helpline and information, as well as funding medical advancements and cautionary measures.

The association is hosting a Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Everett on Saturday, Sept. 7. All registered participants get a free t-shirt if they achieve fundraising minimum established at their local office, which is usually $100. Participants will also receive a wristband, each a different color:

Orange is for anyone supporting the cause.
Purple is for someone who’s lost someone to Alzheimer’s.
Yellow is for someone currently supporting someone with the disease.
Blue is for someone with either Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Participants are highly encouraged to take action in other ways as well, such as through donations, volunteering, or attending annual walks.
