The Reno/Sparks Walk to End Alzheimer's is coming up this Saturday, September 23. Here are all the details you need to know to make the most of the morning as we take a stand against Alzheimer's disease. We look forward to seeing your smile Saturday morning bright and early!

Program Schedule 

Saturday, September 23, 2017

  • 8:00 am - Registration Opens
    Festivities Area Open to All Participants (face painting, refreshments and more). Visit with our sponsors and enjoy entertainment from DJ Mo Ayala. Make a team sign and get your team photo taken. 
  • 9:00 am - Opening Ceremony Begins
    Promise Flower Ceremony 
  • 9:30 am - Walk Begins (1 mile route or 2 mile loop of Sparks Marina) 
    There will be two water stations on the route but come prepared with your own water bottle! Look out for the kids’ obstacle course halfway round the loop! Event is located at Sparks Marina, Howard Drive, Sparks.


Parking

Parking is available in the Marina parking lot and adjacent streets. Handicapped parking spots are located in the Marina parking lot. Plan to carpool, arrive early or park at Legends to be sure to find a spot! Reserved parking for Grand Champions is located next to the Marina.


Walker Check-In & T Shirt Pick Up

  • Follow the signs to the main Check-In (covered pavilion) area upon arrival and see the festivities map for details of where to find refreshments, promise flowers and t-shirts. 
  • All participants are required to check themselves in on the morning of the Walk, in order to pick up a wristband, gain access to the event Festivities Area and pick up a promise flower. Be sure to register every member of your team in advance to make the check-in process fast and easy on Walk Day. As a rule, captains may NOT check in for the entire team. Check-in for all Walkers will be open starting at 8:00 am. Please note: The check-in area is organized by walker last name, not by team name.
  • Participants with $100 or more in individual fundraising will receive a t-shirt ticket at the check-in desk which may be redeemed for a 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s t-shirt. Donate online to make sure your fundraising dollars are credited to you! 
  • Participants with $500 or more in individual fundraising will receive a Champions medal! Those with $1,000 or more in individual fundraising will also receive Grand Champions benefits at the Walk.

 


We’re on the way to reaching our goal of raising $255,000 at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, but there are 20,000 people in Northern Nevada living with dementia and we need to offer our services to every single one them! If you’re raising money, turn it in on Walk Day or donate online beforehand. Remember, every contribution, large or small, makes a difference. We’re counting on your support!
