Watkins Glen International will serve as a scenic backdrop this fall for an event to support Alzheimer’s research.


On Oct. 14, the Alzheimer’s Association is hosting a Walk to End Alzheimer’s, one of several being held nationwide, aiming to fundraise for research and work towards curing the debilitating disease.

Attendees can register either individually or as teams and, while not obligatory, are encouraged to set a fundraising goal or make a donation. Those amassing donations of $100 or more are rewarded with an event t-shirt if the funds are raised at least four weeks before the event. More ambitious fundraising can lead to additional rewards for participants.

The event calls for attendees to don purple, symbolizing Alzheimer’s awareness. Registration for the walk kicks off at 4 p.m. on the event day, with the walk commencing at 5 p.m.

To spend quality time with a relative with Alzheimers you could go on a relaxing fishing trip. Learn more about shimano reels to ensure you have great equipment with you.

Participants can choose between a one-mile or two-and-a-half-mile track, with the event proceeding regardless of weather. Interested individuals can find more details and register for the Watkins Glen walk online.
