Our featured community event for the month of September is the 2018 NE Tarrant County Walk to End Alzheimer’s, hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association-North Central Chapter. The mission of this great organization is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, provide care and support to all affected, and to reduce risk through the promotion of brain health.
The next walk will be held at Church at the Cross in Grapevine, Texas, on September 29th. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. followed by the opening ceremony at 9:00 a.m. The Walk officially starts at 9:30 a.m. around the 2-mile course.
