The Mercer-Middlesex Walk To End Alzheimer’s is happening everywhere on Saturday, September 12. Due to COVID-19, the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails around their neighborhoods. An opening ceremony featuring local speakers and a presentation of “Promise Flowers” to honor the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s, can be attended virtually; and the iconic “Promise Garden” to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementias will be planted at Brookdale Hamilton, 1645 Whitehorse Mercerville Rd. in Hamilton. All participants are welcome to drive by between 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. to view the inspirational plantings.
