Alzheimer's walks scheduled for September

The annual Buffalo Walk to End Alzheimer's – which supports the free services, classes and outreach of the local Alzheimer's Association Chapter – is scheduled for this fall.

Across Western New York, more than 160,000 people are dealing with the disease, including about 53,000 afflicted with it. The Alzheimer's Association, Western New York Chapter, provides classes, outreach, respite and support across eight counties in the region, as well as a phone support system staffed 24/7 by trained professionals.

This year’s Buffalo Walk will take place on Sept. 21 at the Buffalo Zoo and Delaware Park, with free zoo admission that day. Register at or call (800) 272-3900.

Walks are also planned for Sept. 7 at the Chautauqua Institution and in Medina; Sept. 28 in Batavia and Lewiston; and Oct. 5 in Warsaw.
