LAKE IN THE HILLS – The Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be Sept. 15 at Sunset Park, 5200 Miller Road.

Participants will go on an approximately 3-mile walk and learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment and support programs and services of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Each walker also will join in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter is recruiting volunteers for roles at Walk to End Alzheimer’s events throughout its 68-county service area.

Volunteers help with many aspects of the walk, from event day setup to informing participants about the Alzheimer’s Association advocacy efforts to guiding walkers along the designated route.
