Fight against Alzheimer's coming to Door County

You can support those affected by Alzheimer’s and join the fight for a cure when the Walk to End Alzheimer’s comes to Door County on September 11th. After registering you’re able to walk at Graham Park, which is a new location for the event. As well as individuals, teams are participating in the walk and raising money. On walk day, participants will honor those affected with a Promise Garden ceremony.The Promise Garden is filled with flowers that are different colors which represent different connections you may have to Alzheimer’s. 


Spencer Feivor, who is a member of the Edward Jones team, will speak at the event. He says that as a presenting sponsor Edward Jones has made clear their commitment to the fight against Alzheimer’s and that he is personally excited to speak at the event. He adds that hopefully one day the walk will be filled with white flowers, which represents the hope for the first Alzheimer’s survivor.



Other Alzehimer’s flower colors include purple which represents a loved one lost to the disease, orange which represents support for the mission, blue which represents those living with Alzheimer's, and yellow which represents those caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. The walk also has a virtual or distant participation option. More details can be found here
