Past Events and Meetings- 

Can you believe that our WALK is less than 48 hours? Thank you to everyone for your passion, drive and your fundraising efforts so far - it is almost time to rock our sea of purple and raise our flowers in honor of all those impacted by Alzheimer's disease. Before we do, here are a few tips to make your walk day experience the best one yet!! 

Fast Pass Image

Parking:
Parking for the majority of Walk attendees and volunteers is recommended at any of the parking lots surrounding the Capitol and State & Federal Buildings around Wesley Bolin Plaza, some north of Adams, some south of Jefferson and behind the Capital.  Since it's a Saturday, all these parking lots are free to park in. NOTE: If you see anyone charging you to park in a lot, please notify us immediately. 

Sponsor, Shuttle and Handicap Parking:
If you are a sponsor, require shuttle parking for your residents taking a bus or company van or have a valid handicap plate / permit, you will be provided access to the Sponsor and Shuttle Parking Lot on the map. Sponsors, you will receive a separate email with additional instructions and your parking pass so be on the lookout for it. You will need to show your sponsor parking pass, or your handicap plate/permit to get access to this lot.  Access to this lot is best reached on Jefferson Street starting at 6:00 am. Parking is limited and will be first come, first serve. If you utilize this parking lot, you will not be able to leave the lot until after all of the walkers have returned from the Walk Route. (Please refer to the map attached.)

Check-In:
Registration and our Event opens at 7:30am. On the map below you can see Registration is marked by the STAR icon.  Check-in is where you can turn in any remaining fundraising dollars you've collected and get your coupons for your Commemorative 2018 WALK T-shirt and your Promise Garden Flower.  
If you are a Champion (you've raised $500 or more), please check in with a guest at the Champions Tent, Marked "C" on the map.  It's just one of the ways we are saying thank you for going above and beyond in your fundraising.  

Promise Garden Ceremony & Walk Start Time:
Everyone is invited to join us at 9:00am at our Main Stage for our Promise Garden Ceremony. While DJ NeurotoxSIN will be keeping everyone energized leading up to the ceremony, we encourage all Walk attendees to head over to the stage around 8:45am so we can enjoy Kuiliaipono (Hawaiian dancers) followed by our National Anthem sung by Terry Wheelington and then our Opening Ceremony begins with News Anchor Nicole Crites with Azfamily3TV!
The Walk will start at 9:30am - we will have a countdown leading up to the big moment when we all walk to fight for the first survivor and the vision to #EndALZ!  Get excited, Get your Purple On and we will see you at Wesley Bolin Plaza on Saturday, November 3rd!
