Take a Virtual Walk to End Alzheimer’s

We Invite You to Join TransMedCare on a Walk to End Alzheimer’s

If you were unable to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in your community, we invite you to join our friends TransMedCare on a Virtual Walk so you can experience this mission of hope, love and commitment for yourself. The caring team at TransMedCare served as a sponsor of the walk in Orlando, Florida on October 7 to help raise $600,000 to support the amazing work of the Alzheimer’s Association and help put an end to this tragic disease. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Keeping a Promise to Keep Walking and Searching for a Cure

Each year, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s features a colorful display of flowers, a Promise Garden. Participants choose the flower — orange, purple, yellow or blue — that represents their connection to the disease and their reason for walking. Together, the flowers create a garden of hope, as we honor, care and fight for people affected by Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. Each flower carries a special meaning: ORANGE: I support the cause and a vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia; PURPLE: I have lost someone to Alzheimer’s; YELLOW: I am supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s; BLUE: I have Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia.
