The assisted living and memory care community is a perfect venue for the walk that will circle The Palace Gardens Homestead, located at 3100 NE 8th Street. The event starts with a 9 a.m. registration followed by the walk at 9:30 a.m.
“Our mini-walk encourages people in the area of all ages to come out and support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease,” said Jennifer Almodovar, the memory care lifestyle director. “We wanted to partner with the local community to do our part to help bring awareness and funds to the disease which affects over 5 million Americans. All money raised will go to the Alzheimer’s Association.”
It’s free to participate in the walk. Anyone can walk and teams aren’t required. “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” t-shirts will be available for $5 and a remembrance flower will be provided with a $10 to $15 donation.
The event will feature live music, a variety of vendor exhibits, activities for children including face painting and a bounce house, and food trucks. Miami Heat dancers will be on hand along with mascot “Burnie”.
Sponsorships and vendors are invited and are asked to donate a service or item for the event’s raffle. Set up is by 8:30 a.m.
Information about the “mini-walk” and sponsorships is available by calling Jennifer Almodovar at 305-508-6046 and Elizabeth Martinez 305-508-6060.
