News and Announcements

Watch this space to learn about upcoming events and the latest Walk to End Alzheimer's news!

In anticipation of this Saturday, I wanted to share a few logistics with you:

Parking There is plenty of free parking at Camp Arrowhead, located at 275 Kenyon Road in Suffolk. We will have some parking spaces reserved for handicapped parking as well.

Registration will open at 8:30 AM. We do accept onsite registration the day of the event.

Money You can turn in money at the Registration tent. Be sure to let us know what team member(s) should be credited for the donation(s), and write the total amount enclosed on the outside of the envelope.

T-shirts Individuals who have raised $100 or more are eligible to receive a T-shirt. When you arrive at the Walk, 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. Be sure to pick yours up before the Walk begins. The different colors represent different things:

  • 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.

Walk Route The entire Walk route is contained on the grounds of Camp Arrowhead. Volunteers will be stationed along the route to direct you. Both a 1 mile and a 2 mile option are available. Please note – the Walk route is not paved and therefore might be difficult for wheelchairs to navigate. We hope to have a golf cart available to drive those who can’t walk along the Walk route.

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 and individuals, and announce fundraising totals to date. There will also be door prizes, but you must be present to win
