Recreational and serious walkers alike are gearing up to “take their mark” for the Alzheimer’s Association's Essex-Hudson-Union Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on Sat., Sept. 23 at Newark's picturesque Weequahic Park, just off Elizabeth & Meeker Avenues.
As the association’s largest annual fundraising event, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s attracts over 500,000 individuals nationally. Walk-day events include a live DJ, team photo opportunities and post-walk refreshments. In addition, each person that raises $100 or more will receive a 2017 Walk To End Alzheimer’s t-shirt. The event kick-offs with check in at 8:30 a.m., followed by opening ceremonies at 9:45 a.m. and a 10 a.m. start time. Individuals, private and business groups and corporate teams are welcome.
Corporate, foundation and individual sponsorships also are being sought to join National Presenting Sponsor Edward Jones. To assist individuals, local businesses, corporations and organizations with their fundraising efforts, the Greater New Jersey Chapter provides a free recruitment/fundraising marketing kit, complete with donation canisters and “Casual for a Cause” stickers. Paper flowers, which can be used to create a display in the walk-day Promise Garden, also are available as a team-organized fundraiser.
