OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City’s 2022 Walk to End Alzheimer’s was held Saturday, October 22.

This year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s took place in Scissortail Park with the walk and ceremony beginning at 10 a.m.

All registered Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants will receive a Promise Garden flower.

Each flower color represents something different:

  • Blue is for someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia
  • Purple is for those who have lost someone to Alzheimer’s
  • Yellow is for someone who is currently supporting or caring for a person living with Alzheimer’s
  • Orange is for those who support the cause and the Association’s vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia

Each participant received a flower to represent their connection with the disease.
