KENS CARES: Let's fight to end Alzheimer's disease

Join KENS 5 and the Alzheimer's Association for the Walk to End Alzheimer's at Six Flags Fiesta Texas on October 21.

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 21, 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 will 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. Every dollar you give will be matched by Methodist Healthcare and Methodist Healthcare Ministries up to $150,000!  The Alzheimer's Association is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Every registered participant who achieves the fundraising minimum of $100 will receive an official Walk to End Alzheimer's T-shirt via USPS. To receive a shirt in time for walk day, participants must raise the minimum at least four weeks prior to the event.
