Event Details

Alzheimer's disease kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Alzheimer’s touches more than 5 million Americans. The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we find a way to change the course of this disease. You can make a difference. This fall, Providence College will host its first Alzheimer’s walk on November 9th during Alzheimer’s Awareness month. This 5k event will be open to walker/runners. Our “Walk to Remember,” will raise awareness about the need for early identification of persons with Alzheimer’s and also raise much needed funds for research. All proceeds from the walk will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Rhode Island Chapter.

Our Walk to Remember will be held at Providence College’s New Track Facility rain or shine on Saturday morning, November 9th, 2013. Registration and check-in will begin at 9:30 am. The walk will kick-off at 10:00 with guest speakers, music, and food. The walk will end around 11:30 am. Pass the word along to your friends and family. All are welcome! There is no entry fee but donations are encouraged. Walkers who raise $50 or more in donations will receive a free t-shirt! Those who raise $100 or more will be entered into a drawing to receive a door prize! Donations will support research into prevention, treatments, and a cure for Alzheimer’s. 
 
Registration forms may be copied or more can be picked up at Providence College in the Health Policy and Management program office in Howley Hall, Service 229 or the S.A.I.L Information Desk in Slavin and turned in at the check-in table at 9:30 am on event day.
