Once again Fort Bend will host a Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year’s event will occur Saturday October 29, and will be held at the First Colony AMC Theatres in Sugar Land. Fort Bend Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be a 5K (3.1 mile) walk with a family and pet friendly 1K.
This fundraising event provides the means to accomplish the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association which is: To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; To provide and enhance care and support for all affected; And to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Participants who raise $ 100 or more will receive an event t-shirt. To register and help raise funds, visit our website at alztex.org/walk.
In 2010 over $ 88,000 was raised by 800 plus participants. The Fort Bend Committee is already in the planning stages but would welcome volunteers to help in this great cause.
