People of all ages are invited to participate in Stillwater’s inaugural Walk to End Alzheimer’s Saturday on the Oklahoma State University campus.

Day-of registration begins at 8:30 a.m. on the south lawn of Engineering South, just east of Edmon Low Library. The one-mile walk begins following a brief ceremony at 10 a.m.

Individuals or teams can register early here. Registration is free, but walkers are asked to donate.

More than 64,000 Oklahomans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and more than 223,000 family and friends are providing care, according to the Alzheimer’s Association Oklahoma Chapter.

OSU’s Human Development and Family Science is hosting the event.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Money raised helps support Oklahoma families and critical research.
