Walk to End Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting western Wisconsin and New Richmond residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Sept. 17, at New Richmond High School, 650 E. Richmond Way. The event opens at 8:30 a.m. with the opening ceremony at 9:40 a.m. immediately followed by the walk at 10 a.m.
Program Assistant of Discovery Club Amy Olson will serve as master of ceremonies to welcome individuals, families and members of the community. The walk is chaired by Behavioral Health Care Manager of Bluestone Physician Services Cassandra Johnson and ADRC Social Worker Kim Bauer, BSW.
On walk day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony — a mission-focused experience that signifies our solidarity in the fight against the disease.
The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent people’s connection to Alzheimer’s — their
personal reasons to end the disease.
We are excited to share that Matt Lepay and Paul Braun, two of the most recognized voices in Wisconsin sports, are returning as honorary co-chairs of the 2022 Walk to End Alzheimer’s supporting all Wisconsin walks. These acclaimed broadcasters each have had family members impacted by Alzheimer’s and are leading the “Sportscasters Against Alzheimer’s” team. Lepay is the current voice of Wisconsin Badgers sports doing play-by-play for Badgers’ football and basketball and Braun is the former voice of Badger’s men’s hockey.
In Wisconsin, there are more than 120,000 people living with the disease and 198,000 serving as caregivers. In St. Croix County alone, more than 1,200 individuals age 65 and older are living with dementia.
