The need for awareness and fundraising doesn't go away just because COVID-19 stops people from getting together. The Walk to End Alzheimer's has events all over the country, and here in Michigan, they've had to get creative to shine the spotlight on their cause.
The Walk to End Alzheimer's in Grand Rapids will still be taking place on October 3, but there are a few changes in order to keep people safe with social distancing during the pandemic.
The first half of the event will be virtual, with an opening ceremony at 10 a.m. and the walk taking place at 10:30 wherever people choose to participate. Click here to access the link to the Livestream.
Then from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., people are invited to drive through Millennium Park to view the Promise Garden.
The event is free, but fundraising is encouraged.
