FARGO — The Alzheimer's Association is inviting Fargo residents to participate in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's on Saturday, Sept. 26.
The Walk in Fargo will continue, but instead of hosting a large gathering, the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across the Fargo area.
On Walk day, an opening ceremony and presentation will take place online at 10 a.m. It will be delivered to participants' smartphones, tablets and computers.
A small group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day at Lindenwood Park, 1905 Roger Maris Drive, Fargo, to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s. The Promise Garden will be available for viewing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Features are being added to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s mobile app to create an opportunity for the community to connect. Participants can use the app and new “Walk Mainstage'' to track their steps and distance, follow a virtual Walk path, manage their Facebook fundraisers, and access information and resources from the Association and Walk sponsors to help individuals and families affected by the disease.
