KENS CARES: Join us for the Walk to End Alzheimer's on October 16

More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

SAN ANTONIO — 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 16, 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.
