The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter (the Chapter) is now recruiting walkers, supporters
and volunteers for its first-ever Staten Island fundraising walk, Walk To End Alzheimer’s. The two-mile walk
will take place in scenic South Beach (Seaview Avenue and Father Capodanno Boulevard) on the morning of
Sunday, September 27, 2015. For more than 30 years, the Chapter has provided compassionate care and life-
saving support for the hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers with dementia and their caregivers while
supporting the advancement of research. The Walk is expected to raise $100,000 for the vital programs and
services the Chapter provides.
Families, children as well as dogs are also welcome to walk. Purple bandanas, frisbees and other pet-friendly
items with the Walk logo will be available for a suggested donation. There will also be a color-coded promise
flower given out to all walkers to serve as a visual testimony to how everyone is connected to the disease.
To register, visit http://act.alz.org/walkstatenisland or call the 24-hour helpline at 800-272-3900. Walkers who raise money are eligible for a variety of incentive prizes such as shirts, medals and more.

Walk To End Alzheimer’s raises money for vital programs and services offered at no charge by the Alzheimer’s
Association, New York City Chapter, advancing important research into better treatments and a possible cure,
and helping to increase public awareness about the disease and its impact on our community.
