Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease
October 7, 2018: Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Location: Ellis-Porter Riverside Park, Jefferson City
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death and affects millions of people. It kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. DHSS is partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Please join our Director, Dr. Randall Williams, and your DHSS colleagues in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sunday, October 7th at 11 a.m. This is a family friendly walk with roughly .65 miles that will be held at Ellis-Porter Riverside Park Pavilion, 1425 Riverside Dr. Jefferson City. Teams may consist of one or more persons, and may include friends, colleagues, family members, etc. Teams will need to create a team name and designate a captain to register the team online. Each team member will then go online to register under their team name. “Team DHSS” has already been created and the team roster is growing. If you would like to join our team you may do so here. However, if you choose to create your own team, please include DHSS in your team name so we can represent our department with as many staff as possible! Everyone who participates will receive a flower pinwheel to represent someone you know that has been affected by this disease. For more information and to register, go to the 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Jefferson City, MO.
