19th Annual Walk to Remember Draws Largest Crowd Ever
The 19th Annual Walk To Remember was held on Nov. 12 to benefit the Alzheimer & Parkinson Association of Indian River County. Boasting one of the largest crowds ever with nearly 450 walkers, the Walk allowed participants to meander through Riverside Park, and to stroll through Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary, as well.
Pre-walk festivities included honoring our Veterans, with Moreen Burkhart singing the National Anthem while the Sebastian River High School NJROTC color guard presented the flag, followed by an energizing warm-up led by personal trainer John Sammartano.
Founded in 1982, the Alzheimer & Parkinson Association offers 40 programs to those with memory and movement disorders, and their families, all free of charge. It is not affiliated with any national organization, relying on the generosity of the philanthropic community, grants, and fundraisers. The annual Walk To Remember is the nonprofit’s signature fundraising event, and donations for the Walk are still being accepted
