The Alzheimer’s Association is hoping for 1,300 participants to take over the State Capitol lawn with purple for Saturday’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Registration for the walk starts at 8:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m.

This year’s theme is, “Why I Walk.” Participants are encouraged to write inspiring messages on their shirts and on a promise garden flower to tell why ending Alzheimer’s is important to them. Those flowers will be planted on the capital lawn.

Last year’s walk raised more than $251,000.
