2Nd walk for Alzheimer's awareness happens in São Paulo
September is the global awareness month for Alzheimer's disease and, for that matter, the Veterans Agency and ABRAz (Brazilian Alzheimer's Association) second edition of Memory Walk Brazil, a walk in awareness of Alzheimer's. This action will take place on September 23 at Villa Lobos Park, in São Paulo.
With a 1.4km path inside the park, starting at 8:30 AM, the walk aims to encourage reflection on the importance of awareness and prevention of Alzheimer's, informing the population about the disease.
The event will have several attractions, such as music, games, massages and lectures on the subject with professionals from ABRAz. In addition, they will provide tests for blood pressure analysis, BMI (body mass index) and posture testing.
The meeting is free and open to the public. However, the theme t-shirts of the project for $ 45.00 are being marketed on the Memory Walk website. The amount collected will go to ABRAz and will contribute to the association's projects.
