The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Lubbock area residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in Lubbock Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on November 5th, 2022 at Moonlight Musicals Amphitheater.
On Walk day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s and all other dementia with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony — a moving display of hope that provides a stunning visual of our community coming together to end Alzheimer’s..
The event is set to start at 9:00 a.m. with the opening ceremony starting at 10 a.m. and the Walk kicking off at 10:30 a.m. It’s not too late for participants to join a team or register to walk as an individual at act.alz.org/lubbock.
Moonlight Musicals Amphitheater is located at 413 E. Broadway, Lubbock, Texas 79403. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a rain or shine event. Participation is free; however, participants are asked to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds for the fight against Alzheimer’s.
While plans are moving forward to host the Lubbock Walk in person, the health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers remain the top priorities. The Alzheimer’s Association will continue to closely monitor CDC, state and local guidelines to ensure Walk events adhere to the latest recommendations.
