Oxnard Walk to End Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Oxnard Walk to End Alzheimer’s event will look a little different this year. The event will be held on Sept. 26, 2020, but instead of a large gathering, the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across their local communities. To add to the festivities, The Collection at RiverPark, which hosted the walk in previous years, is offering a view-only Promise Garden for participants.
At 9 a.m. on the day of the event, the Alzheimer’s Association will kick things off with a virtual Opening and Promise Garden Ceremony, which will be live-streamed on the Walk to End Alzheimer’s app. The Opening Ceremony will feature presentations from local speakers, and the Promise Garden Ceremony will honor the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.
After the ceremonies, participants are encouraged to complete the walk anywhere they choose. When they are finished walking, participants are invited to safely experience the view-only Promise Garden at The Collection near the Splash Pad on Town Center Drive any time before 4 p.m.
