Alzheimer's Awareness Month

September is World Alzheimer's Month! In an effort to put an end to Alzheimer's Disease, the Alzheimer's Association is promoting its annual Walk to END Alzheimer's. The walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness, as well as funds, for Alzheimer care, research, and support programs.

In Wichita Falls, the Walk to END Alzheimer's is scheduled for Saturday, September 28 at Sikes Lake.

There is no cost to register for the walk, however, each participant is asked to fundraise to contribute to the cause.

To register for the walk in Wichita Falls, form a team, or for more information about the Alzheimer's Association, visit or call (940) 767-8800.

The mission of the Alzheimer's Association is to "eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health."

World Alzheimer's Day is September 21.
