Walk Away Alzheimer’s on the Coney Island Boardwalk

On Sunday, September 23rd, The 24th Annual Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on the Coney Island Boardwalk. Since 1989, they’ve raised more than $300 million to help raise money for Alzheimer’s research and support. Each year, thousands of walkers have come out to support the cause and to raise over $1 million.

Registration has already opened for the event. On the day of the walk, there will be on-site registration and breakfast from 9-9:30 am, opening ceremonies and special awards from 9:30-10, and the walk from 10-11:30.

The Coney Island location will be one of three walks taking place around New York in September. There will also be walks in Manhattan on September 21st in Riverside Park and in Queens on September 30th at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
