On Saturday, March 1, residents and businesses from throughout the Coachella Valley will come together to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease at the 15th annual Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

In addition to the two-mile route, Walk to End Alzheimer’s will include a health fair, entertainment, food, awards and family festivities. Walkers who raise $100 receive a commemorative T-shirt, and there are prizes for the top fund-raising teams and individuals.

The event takes place at the Palm Desert Civic Center Park. Onsite registration opens at 9am; opening ceremonies begin at 10am; the walk begins at 10:30 am.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Donations benefit the Alzheimer’s Association – the leading voluntary health organization for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Its mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
