An event will spread awareness and educate this weekend at the 3rd annual Alzheimer's Memory Walk event Saturday morning, put on by the Sheridan Senior Center. Family Caregiver Director, Stella Montano, talked about this year's event.
Those who don't want to walk can still attend to get information and support the event. Cost is $10 for a t-shirt for walkers who will go from 9-10 around Whitney Commons Park. Registration will be from 8:30 – 9 am.
The Senior Center is still looking for $100-sponsors for the event. Anyone unable to attend can donate by visiting www.alzhiemers.org and clicking on the map of Wyoming on Sheridan. Last year the event raised about $3,000, and though the event is a fundraiser Montano said the Senior Center's main goal is educating about the disease.
To sign up or for more information call the Senior Center at 672-2240.
