News and Announcements

We are just days away from this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s event on Oct 19 in Port Warwick, and I wanted to share a few logistics with you:

Parking Ample free parking is available in the Sentara parking lot.

Registration  Online registration will close at 9:00 AM on Friday, October 18, however, people can register for the Walk on Walk day. Registration opens at 8:30 AM.

Check-In All participants  – whether you are registered or not - must check in at the Registration tent to receive your wristband for the Promise Garden.

Donations  Donations can be turned in at the Registration tent. Checks should be made out to the Alzheimer’s Association. If you are dividing a donation up between team members, be sure to let us know how much money each team member should be credited.

T-shirts Registered individuals who have raised $100 or more are eligible to receive a Walk T-shirt. If your team captain has not already picked up T-shirts, or if you are walking as an individual, go to the Registration tent where you will be given a ticket to turn in to collect your T-shirt.

Promise Garden Flowers Every registered walker will receive a Promise Garden flower. Check-in at the Registration tent to receive your wristband. Show your wristband at the Promise Garden to pick up your flower. The different flower colors represent our relationship to Alzheimer’s disease:

  • Blue – I have Alzheimer’s disease
  • Yellow – I am caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Purple – I have lost someone to Alzheimer’s disease
  • Orange – I am an advocate for those with Alzheimer’s disease

Please note: Participants are limited to one flower each, so pick the color which best represents your relation to the cause.

Team Photos will be taken in front of the WTEA backdrop located behind the gazebo.

Refreshments will be available after 8:00am behind the gazebo.

Walk Route The Walk begins at Styron Square and takes us through Port Warwick back to Emily Dickinson Square. Both a 1.5 mile and a 3 mile option are available.

Opening Ceremony begins at 9:40 AM.

Closing Ceremony will begin when all walkers return, approximately 11:15 AM.  We will recognize the top 5 fundraising teams, the top 5 fundraising individuals, and announce fundraising totals to date. There will also be door prizes, but you must be present to win

Questions?  Contact Rona at 757 329 -4440 or Barbara Monteith at 757 793-5077 or bgmonteith@alz.org.
