Join us for a morning of fun, food, fabulous views, entertainment, exercise and remembrance at our 4th Annual Walk to End Alzheimer's held on the gorgeous Coney Island Boardwalk. This 2-mile walk, held rain or shine, will raise awareness and much-needed funds for those affected by Alzheimer's disease that go directly to support research and hundreds of free programs offered by the Alzheimer's Association NYC Chapter. Leading the voices of his fellow Brooklynites will be Marty Markowitz as well as other community supporters who hope to see an end to this devastating disease.
The Walk To End Alzheimer's raises money for research into better treatments and a possible cure, and for such important programs as support groups, educational workshops, ethnically diverse programs in New York City's African American, Hispanic, Chinese and Russian communities, training programs and the MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® program that helps finds people with dementia who wander and get lost - close to home or across the nation.
