Hundreds of area residents will gather together in Redmond on Sunday, Sept. 23 for the annual Eastside Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Last year, this event raised $104,043 to fight Alzheimer’s disease and provide care and support programs for local families.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise critically needed funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. Participants honor their loved ones and those in our community who’ve been impacted by Alzheimer’s during a poignant Promise Garden Ceremony, followed by a 2-mile walk.

This is a family and pet friendly event, and the walk route is fully accessible. It is free to attend; however, participants who donate or raise $100 or more will receive a Walk to End Alzheimer’s t-shirt.

The opening ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. on the day of the walk at the Redmond Municipal Campus at 15670 NE 85th St. Redmond, WA 98052. The walk officially begins at 10 a.m.
