If you’re anything like me, you’ll come up with any excuse to wander through the Fab 40’s and admire the amazing homes there. So what better excuses could there be than supporting the Alzheimer’s Association and getting some exercise?
This coming Saturday, July 27 is the 6th Annual Fab 40’s 5K Run/Walk. According to the event website, “We want to increase the understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and its devastating effect on families. We feel the need to provide an opportunity for affected families to meet and interact with one another.” In order to help those afflicted with the disease, their caregivers and families, all proceeds from the event will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org).
Registration begins at 7am at East Lawn Memorial Park (4300 Folsom Blvd.). Starting at 8:30amd, the 5K route will take participants through the Fab 40’s neighborhood along M Street and back through the park. And just in case that isn’t enough for you, custom event T-shirts, refreshments, music and awards will also be provided. And while you’re in the park, be sure to visit the new Alzheimer’s Memorial Wall, the first of its kind in the nation, modeled on the Vietnam Wall.
Entry fees are $35 for adults (the early discounts have passed); $16 for all Kid’s Fun Run participants. For more information and to register, call (916) 492-8966 or visit fab40s5k.org/.
