Walk to End Alzheimer’s comes to Issaquah

By Staff

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s is coming for the first time to Issaquah Oct. 12.

The walk, which begins and ends at the Issaquah Community Center, is a 2.6-mile course through downtown.

Funds raised benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

After the walk, Aegis of Issaquah will host a luncheon with a band and a five-course lunch featuring its chef, Chris Meyer, and the culinary service directors from other Aegis communities.

The Issaquah event has set a goal to raise $20,000. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the community center, 301 Rainier Blvd. S.

An estimated 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
