Walk to Support NYC’s Alzheimer’s Caregivers and Those They Care For
On Sunday, September 30th, the paths in South Beach will become ribbons of orange as thousands of orange-clad New Yorkers walk to support CaringKind, formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. This year’s two-mile Walk will raise $100,000 that will fund CaringKind’s free programs and services for the thousands of New York individuals, families and caregivers affected by a dementia diagnosis.
CaringKind, NYC’s leading expert in Alzheimer’s and dementia care for more than three decades, is now recruiting walkers, supporters and volunteers.
CaringKind’s Alzheimer’s Walk has something for every member of the family with free breakfast, live entertainment, an activity area for children, and a Doggie Dugout for four-legged walkers. A special “Memory Wall” will be constructed where Walk participants can post mementos, messages or photos of someone in their lives they have cared for, or who is currently affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
There is no fee to participate. Walkers can register on-site, but are strongly urged to register in advance.
