Alzheimer's kickoff will begin Thursday


A kick-off and team recruitment event for The Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Boardman Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Los Gallos Restaurant, 685 Boardman-Canfield Road.

Participants can register their teams for the walk, get new fundraising ideas, get updates on this year’s walk and enjoy light refreshments and raffle drawings.

If team members and potential team members wear purple, the Alzheimer’s Association signature color, they will be eligible for a door prize.

Jess Briganti, WFMJ-TV staff meteorologist, will be a greeter and will serve as honorary chair and mistress of ceremonies for the walk in October.

Registration is required by contacting Helen Paes, development coordinator, at 330-533-3300 or email
