Niagara Gazette — Registration for the Niagara County Walk to End Alzheimer’s is easy and fast online at alz.org/wny or by toll-free phone call to 1-800-272-3900. The route is approximately 2 miles long and is open to the public, who are encouraged to register as an individual, as a team, or to donate to someone else’s team.
Registered participants can earn prizes, including a T-shirt, and everyone who signs up by Saturday will receive a free vinyl pinwheel flower to “plant” in the on-site Promise Garden and “pick” after the walk to take home as a keepsake. The flowers come in four colors, which represent a reason to Walk: purple indicates the loss of a loved one to the disease; yellow denotes a caregiver; blue represents those with the disease; and orange symbolizes general support and advocacy for the association and its efforts.
Registration on Saturday at Artpark opens at 9: a.m.; the walk ceremony gets under way at 10 a.m.
