The Alzheimer’s Association invites the Greater Mankato area to join the fight against Alzheimer’s by participating in Mankato Walk to End Alzheimer’s –Mankato. The Walk will take place on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 on the campus of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

On Walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden Ceremony – a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s.

As part of the Mankato event, the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter will pay special tribute to the honorary walk family. This year, the Association will recognize the family of Doug Fritz and their walk team Doug’s Thunder Road
