The 2021 Walk To End Alzheimer’s Invites You

Saturday, October 2 is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Downtown Greenville. Participants of all ages and abilities are invited to join the fight against the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held annually in over 600 cities across the country, is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

The disease affects over 6,000,000 people in the United States and according to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s-related mortality have climbed by 145 % in the last 20 years.

When you participate and donate to the event, you are helping to support the organization’s goal, and your participation in the event helps to raise Alzheimer’s awareness in the community. It also enables the Alzheimer’s Association to provide care and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while also speeding critical research.

The event’s primary concern is the participants’ health and safety. Safety precautions will be in place, such as physical distancing, contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations, and more. The event organizers also ask that all Walk participants be vaccinated against COVID-19 or use a mask when in an overcrowded location, in accordance with CDC guidelines. Masks will also be available on-site.

Join the walk on Saturday at Fluor Field, or take a 2-mile walk in your own neighborhood to support people living with Alzheimer’s.

There will also be walks in Anderson, Spartanburg, and Asheville in October. Visit to sign up or find a walk near you.
