NBC 5 and the Alzheimer's Association invite you to join the fight against Alzheimer's by taking part in one of five local Walk to End Alzheimer's events happening this September and October. Register today at alz.org/walk and start or join a team today.

As a participant at the Walk, you will have the opportunity to select a flower and participate in our Promise Garden Ceremony pledging your commitment to continue to remember, honor, care and fight to end Alzheimer's disease.

Each flower represents your connection to Alzheimer's - a disease that currently has no prevention and no cure. But, what if one day there was a white flower for Alzheimer's first survivor? What if there were millions of them? NBC 5, along with the Alzheimer's Association, invite you to help make that beautiful day happen by walking in the world's largest fundraiser to fight the disease. Register today at alz.org/walk

Funds raised help with the care, support and research available to residents in our area currently living with the nation's sixth leading cause of death. At the Walk, participants will also have the opportunity to get involved by learning more about the support programs and services offered locally.

Start or join a team by registering today at alz.org/walk. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease!
