Alzheimer’s Walk to be held virtually
computer online

MONROE — The 19th Annual Green County Alzheimer’s Walk will be virtual this year with a special on-line presentation Sept. 12. Starting now, the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin is hosting #WalkWednesdays on where participants can share their support of walking for Alzheimer’s and dementia

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year’s walks will not be held at the Behring Senior Center in Monroe. Instead, walkers are encouraged to “Walk Your Way” and can walk wherever they feel the safe and comfortable. 

These walks are a show of community support for people who are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. 

Joan Kamholz was the 2019 Green County Alzheimer’s Walk Honorary Chair.

Registration is now open for the 2020 Green County Alzheimer’s Walk. Visit to sign up. Individuals, teams and families are encouraged to walk. Funds raised for the Green County Alzheimer’s Walk stay local to provide free programs, education, services and resources from the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin in Green County.

There will be a special presentation video Saturday, Sept. 12 at where live announcements of the fundraising Top Teams will be made from Teena Monk-Gerber.
