Local teams are getting ready this week for the annual Alzheimer’s Walk in Los Alamos.

As teams continue to form, volunteers are busy preparing for the big day that takes place this weekend.

The Saturday walk is spearheaded by community leaders, including Pauline Powell Schneider, director of the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization, and Vickie Griffis, coordinator of the Alzheimer’s Café and several local support groups.

The event kicks off with registration at 8 a.m. and an AARP-sponsored breakfast prior to walks around Ashley Pond and the Los Alamos Historic District. There will also be a Jerry Bower 5K run and a kids fun run.

A small ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. and after the exercise, community members and walkers are invited to pursue the gift basket silent auction and raffle.

Kay Burick has been busy receiving donations to benefit the weekend event including paintings from Mary Carol Williams and Secudino Sandoval, a “Violets” quilt from the RSVP quilters, jewelry by Lee Ann Bower, binoculars from Hallmark and a variety of gift certificates for food and services, just to name a few.

The Betty Ehart Senior Center will host the weekend events and is the location for a variety of services for both seniors and those caring for seniors.
