Walk to stop Alzheimer’s on September 25th
The Alzheimer’s Association invites Ostinians to take a walk on the 25th of September at Q2 Stadium, 10414.
It includes murals, architecture and music, and the large outdoor space allows for physical distance.
As we move forward with plans to accommodate Austin walking, the health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers are a priority. All physical events apply security protocols, including physical distance, non-contact registration, hand washing stations, and more. Masks are welcome and are in place. The association will continue to monitor disease control and prevention centers, state and local guidelines to ensure that walking arrangements are compliant and safe for participants.
For those who prefer it, the walk-in option offers walk-in experiences through the website and mobile app.
