Thousands of Sioux Falls area residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer's disease at the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's. In 2017, the Sioux Falls Walk raised $157,000, contributing to more than $86 million raised nationwide for care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer's.
The Sioux Falls Walk will be held at a new location this year, in the north parking lot of Cherapa Place in downtown Sioux Falls. In addition to a poignant opening ceremony, the event features vendors and a Kids Zone prior to a beautiful walk around Falls Park.
Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's is the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research.
