Walk to End Alzheimer’s planned Sept. 21

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be Saturday, Sept. 21, on the Paul Bunyan Trail in Baxter.

Registration and kickoff activities will start at 9 a.m. at the Northland Arboretum.

Teams are now being organized to raise funds and awareness. Start or join a team at alz.org/walk.

Funds raised will provide care and support services to people in the northern Minnesota region. Funds raised through the walk make possible more than 15 support groups throughout the northern Minnesota region, offering a safe and confidential place in which support, ideas and education are shared; a 24-hour Information Helpline, providing referrals and information to more than 400 callers monthly (800-272-3900); ongoing training for care providers; and public advocacy efforts that improve access to quality dementia care and increase funding for research to find a cure.
