Memory Walk is the major fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association. This is its sixth consecutive year in Hays.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. The walk begins at 10:30 a.m. Participants should gather at Gate 3.
Participants may walk individually or in teams of five people. Teams can be organized ahead of time by visiting www.alz.org/memorywalk.
