Walk to End Alzheimer’s happens this weekend with $1 million fundraiser goal

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to fight Alzheimer’s disease, and it’s happening this weekend.

There are walks taking place all across the nation including here in Indianapolis.

Our walk takes place on Saturday, October 1 at Carroll Stadium (1001 W New York Street Indianapolis, IN 46202) to help raise $1 million to fight this heartbreaking disease.

The event opens at 9 a.m., with the Promise Garden Ceremony at 10:30 a.m. and the walk beginning at 10:45 a.m. Registration is free and available until walk day.
