What You Need to Know for This Weekend!

This Saturday is the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Mason City, and we want to make sure you're prepared for the day.  Here's what you need to know:


  • Registration will start at 8:00am, and that's also when we'll open our Silent Auction.
  • Parking will be on the east end of Mason City High School
  • When you arrive, greeters will help direct you to registration.  Everyone needs to register!  If you do this online at act.alz.org/masoncity, that will speed up the process.  You'll have an envelope into which you can put donations or money that you raised.  Then you'll get a wristband for your Promise Garden flower.
  • If you raised over $100, you'll also get a t-shirt.  If you raised $500 or $1,000, you're a Champion or Grand Champion, respectively!  Go you!  There are medals and shirts coming your way!
  • Check out our Silent Auction inside of the school!  We have quite a few different baskets filled with a big selection of items donated by people and businesses from around the community!
  • Cash and checks will be accepted at the Walk, but checks must be made out to "The Alzheimer's Association" for them to count.  There will also be an option to donate through your cell phone, too.
  • There will be some snacks, coffee and music.
  • The Opening Ceremony will start at 9:00am, and the Walk itself will start as soon as the ceremony is complete.
  • The Walk route will take us around the south side of the school, then north along Illinois Avenue.  At Asbury Drive, we’ll take the walking path through the neighborhood.  It will wind around and then turn south, with an optional longer loop adding half a mile to the route.  The walking trail ends at Birch Drive, which we will then take along the river to 4th Street SE, where we will return to the school.  The total length of the route is just over two miles (with the optional route, seen below in green, adding another half a mile).
  • The Walk should be done before 11am.

 MC Walk Route

So come on out this Saturday for the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer's!  Bring some friends, enjoy the day and help us take a step toward making a world without Alzheimer's!  I look forward to seeing all of you out there!
