When is it?
The Southeastern Regional Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Saturday, Oct. 14. It will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until noon. You don’t have to register until the day of the walk.

How much money does it cost?
Luckily for you, registration doesn’t cost anything. However, donations are welcome. Regardless of how much you can afford to give, you’re doing something great by coming out and supporting those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.

You can find this event happening at Pioneer Plaza at 422-474 N Main St Roswell, NM, 88201. If you need help finding the exact location, you can always put the address into a GPS to find your way.
What should I expect?
Once you register, you will receive a wristband. With your wristband, you can also carry a Promise Garden flower. They come in three different colors and represent your relationship with the disease. If you suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia, you can carry a blue flower. If you’ve lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s, you will carry a purple flower. Yellow flowers are for those who are supporting or caring for someone with the disease, and orange is for people who want to see an end to the disease. You will then carry these flowers around the track. It’s a great way to show your support.
Can I volunteer?
Yes! Volunteering is encouraged. In fact, the Alzheimer’s Association is still looking for people who can help with setting up the event, clean-up, water stops, registration, a t-shirt tent, working the Promise Garden, and a host of other tasks. If you can help out, visit the website and sign up. It’s a great way to go out and give back to your local community and beyond.
