Bluffton’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s going virtual this weekend

BLUFFTON, S.C. (WTOC) - Lowcountry residents will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease this weekend.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s will not be a large in-person gathering in Bluffton. Instead, the walk will take place on sidewalks, tracks and trails across the Lowcountry as participants walk as either individuals, families or small teams.

Participants can be part of the virtual opening ceremonies Saturday morning at 10:45 a.m. and then start their walk at 11 a.m.

There are more ways to get involved in the fight against this brain disease. Even though you’ll be walking separately, the Walk’s iconic Promise Garden will be ‘planted’ as a view-only display on Saturday on Promenade Street in Old Town Bluffton.

“And we’re going to be walking with our dogs and I know my dad, who died of Alzheimer’s, would have loved to be able to walk with his dogs during this type of walk,” said Amanda Phillips/Bluffton Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
