A gathering to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association WNY Chapter will take place this week in advance of the group’s annual autumn walks.
The free event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. today at Brennan’s Bowery Bar and Restaurant, Main Street and Transit Road, Clarence.
The annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s Kick Off Party allows participants to register or re-register a team, and pick up useful tips and information for recruiting walk team members and raising funds.
This fall, the chapter is organizing six walks across the region:
- Sept. 6 in Chautauqua and Orleans counties
- Sept. 20 in Buffalo
- Sept. 27 in Genesee and Niagara counties
- Oct. 4 in Wyoming County
The walks are the primary source of funding for the WNY chapter, which offers free education programs and services to educate the public about Alzheimer’s disease, helps those impacted by it, and funds research to ultimately end the debilitating, incurable disease.
