ADRC Hosts East End Walk and Fall Festival on October 17

The East End Walk and Fall Festival is right around the corner, but there's still time to register and to make a donation. Following the success of its three previous events, Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. (ADRC) is holding its 2015 East End Walk for Alzheimer’s and Fall Festival on October 17 at the Village Green (intersection of Main Street and Mill Road) in Westhampton Beach.

Registration begins at 8:15 a.m., followed by the opening ceremony at 9 a.m. The 5K walk kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. After the Walk, participants are invited to return to the Village Green for a fall-themed lunch buffet, entertainment and raffles at 11:45 a.m.

Participants who raise $100 or more will receive a 2015 Walk lunch tote and a 2015 East End Walk T-shirt. There is no registration fee for teams or walkers who raise donations for the East End Walk. For those who wish to register the day of the event, general admission is $25 for adults, $15 for teens aged 13 to 18, and $10 for children two years of age and older. Children under two are free. Family discount packages (two adults and two children) are available for $35. All proceeds support ADRC’s mission to fight this devastating disease.

The 2015 East End Walk for Alzheimer’s commemorates the four-year anniversary of the grand opening of ADRC’s office in Southampton. This satellite office was designed to allow care consultants to schedule caregiver support groups and family meetings, and to provide information for families and individuals on the east end of Long Island who are coping with Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate, increasing well beyond today’s estimated 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, 60,000 of whom live here on Long Island.

Registration is currently open and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, please contact Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, Executive Director/CEO, at (631) 820-8068 or at maryann.ragona@ADRCinc.org or visit the East End Walk and Fall Festival event page.
