The Quad Cities Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the TaxSlayer Center. Proceeds from the Walk help to fund Alzheimer's care and support, and advance critical research.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Walk to End Alzheimer's is the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research programs. Edward Jones joins in the fight against Alzheimer's as the Walk to End Alzheimer's National Presenting Sponsor.
The Walk to End Alzheimer's will feature the Promise Garden Ceremony, a moving experience that allows participants to raise flowers representing their promise to remember, honor, care and fight for those living with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. Each flower carries special significance:
• Blue: I have Alzheimer's/dementia
• Yellow: I am supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer's/dementia
• Purple: I have lost someone to Alzheimer's/dementia
• Orange: I support the cause
• White Promise Flower: Represents the first survivor
