Join in fight against Alzheimer's

The 7th annual Capital City Memory Walk will take place at 8 a.m. Sept. 26 on the Capitol grounds.

Last year residents of South Lake Tahoe, Stateline, Gardnerville, Minden and Carson City helped raise $20,000 to help fight Alzheimer's disease. This year the Carson City Walk Committee has set a goal of raising $22,500.

The Capital City Memory Walk route will be an approximately two-mile course that winds along the Blue Line Trail through downtown Carson City.

There is no registration fee required to participate in the walk to help with finding a cure for Alzheimer's Disease. Each walker is encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 and with that amount of funds raised, each walker will receive a free T-shirt. Prizes are available for walkers who raise additional money.

Check-in and registration will begin at 8 a.m. on the Capitol grounds, and will include informational booths, silent auction items and more set up on the east side of U.S. 395.

Walk festivities will kick off at 8:30 a.m. with music by Kit LeFerve. The opening ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m. with send-off greetings by Angie Pratt, director of the Northern Nevada office of the Alzheimer's Association.
