KENS CARES: Join us for the Walk to End Alzheimer's on October 15th

When you participate in the walk, your fundraising dollars help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease in our community.

SAN ANTONIO — More than 6 million Americans age 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is held annually in San Antonio by the Alzheimer’s Association. This year’s walk will take place on Saturday, October 15, at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The walk is a rain or shine event.

When you participate in the walk, your fundraising dollars help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease in our community.

All funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer's further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

There is no registration fee for the walk. However, every walker is asked to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds in the fight against Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer's Association is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
