The Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease  2014
Sunday / October 26th
Bergen Community College, Paramus, NJ
 
PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN LOCATION
 
This Walk has grown so large that the Bergen County Parks Commission won’t let it be held at Van Saun Park anymore.
 Last year we ranked #21 in the country in over 300 walks. The organizers of this year’s Alzheimer’s Walk are anticipating a larger turn out than ever before and hope to bring it into the top 10 of Alzheimer’s walks throughout the country.  
 In the past 11 years members from several Councils have become a vital part of the Northern Walk’s success. Their efforts have continued to help the Alzheimer’s Association and our Order to become more prominent in the local community. This year I’m asking you to help spread the word and get more Brother Knights from other Councils to come and help – the more the merrier! This has really become a great fraternal event as we help serve the Alzheimer’s Association.
 On Sunday, October 26th, Councils from Northern New Jersey will once again be providing the following assistance: setting up in the morning, grilling 1000 hamburgers and 2000 hot dogs and cleaning up. We finish up about 2:00 in the afternoon.
