The WALK is considered symbolic and optional. Many people enjoy the pre-WALK celebration, during which time they see they are truly not alone with Alzheimer’s disease. WALKers can choose from a “short fun loop” around the church or the “hilly nature route” which is approximately 1 ½ miles long on the 3rd Creek Greenway behind the churches. The WALK Finish Line is behind the 2nd Presbyterian & Unitarian Churches, where most WALKers park and catch the trolleys.
