Individuals who have lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s – or may know someone who is currently dealing with the challenges of the disease – have the opportunity to make a special tribute to that person at the 2016 Denver Walk to End Alzheimer’s, even if you won’t be able to participate in the annual Walk.
This year for the very first time, the Colorado Chapter’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s event on Saturday, Sept. 17, will feature a 16-foot-wide by 9-foot-high Jumbotron screen, which will show live images from the Walk as well as tributes on the new Promise Garden Tribute Wall.
A complement to the thousands of Promise Flowers that are raised annually at the Walk, the Tribute Wall will feature photos of loved ones who have experienced Alzheimer’s. The Tribute Wall will be prominently displayed on the Jumbotron screen at City Park, with each image broadcast at least three times during the Walk.
After the Denver Walk is completed, the Tribute Wall images will be shown throughout the year on the Colorado Chapter’s website: www.alz.org/co.
The new Promise Garden Tribute Wall offers families that have personally experienced Alzheimer’s the opportunity to honor their loved one while supporting the Colorado Chapter’s ongoing care and support services that are offered at no cost throughout the state, as well as educational programs and research to find a cure.
Each tribute will include the name and photo of the individual, as well as the corresponding Alzheimer’s Promise Flower of the person making the tribute:
- Blue for an individual with Alzheimer’s
- Yellow for a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s
- Purple for an individual who has lost someone to Alzheimer’s
- Orange for an advocate for a world without Alzheimer’s
