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

Registration: Participants are encouraged to register online at https://act.alz.org/penwalk22. We will also be accepting registrations on Walk Day. The Registration tent opens at 8:30 AM.

Money: We encourage you to use the WTEA app to deposit Walk donations. Cash donations can be turned in at the Registration tent. 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 T-shirt. Participants who raised $100 before Sept. 15 should receive their Walk T-shirt in the mail before Walk Day. An official 2022 Walk T-shirt will be mailed to all registered individuals who raise $100+ by Dec 31. Please note – we will not have T-shirts to distribute on Walk Day.

Promise Garden Flowers: Every registered walker will receive a Promise Garden flower. Be sure to pick up your Promise Garden flower before the Walk begins. The different colors represent your relation to the cause:

· 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: Be sure to get a team photo in front of the WTEA backdrop located behind the gazebo.

Caregivers Tent: New this year – a Caregivers Tent will provide a shaded, quiet area for caregivers and their loved ones who might need a break from the ongoing activities.

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: The Opening Ceremony begins at 9:40 AM. Local musician, Bobby Blackhat, will be our emcee.

Closing Ceremony: The 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.
