RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – This weekend, a local hospital and volunteers plan to walk to end Alzheimer’s.
On Saturday, you can participate either at Raleigh General Hospital or the J.W. and Hazel Ruby Welcome Center on Rt. 19. You also have the option to support the cause virtually. Those attending the events will receive a flower for the Promise Gardens on display at both locations, with each color representing a different role in the march to end the disease.
“The purple flower is if you lost someone you love, the blue flower [represents] that you’re living with Alzheimer’s, the yellow flower is for the caregivers and the orange flowers are for people that just want to come out and support that cause,” said volunteers Debbie Peyton and Connie Ray.
The event is free to participate, but donations are accepted. You can register here.
