Cedar Crest Retirement Community has teamed with the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
The 2017 Rock County Walk to End Alzheimer’s is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 30. Participants will meet at the Riverside Park – Harry C. Moore Pavilion Park Shelter located at 1240 Riverside Drive, Beloit. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., followed by a ceremony at 9:00 a.m. The walk kicks off at 9:30 a.m.
While there is no fee to register, we encourage participants to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. When you participate in the walk, your fundraising dollars fuel the mission to end Alzheimer’s disease and your participation in the event helps to increase the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in our community. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help participants reach their fundraising goal.
Every registered participant will receive a T-shirt after achieving the fundraising minimum of $100. Unless otherwise communicated, T-shirts will be available for pick up on the day of the walk. Those who partake in this event will also be given a wristband. Each registered walker with a wristband will receive a Promise Garden flower. Please choose the color that best represents your connection to the disease.
Blue represents someone with Alzheimer's or dementia
Purple is for someone who has lost a loved one to the disease.
Yellow represents someone who is currently supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.
Orange is for everyone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
If you are unable to participate in the walk, consider volunteering on the day of the event. Volunteers are needed to help with set-up, cleanup, registration, water stops, Promise Garden, the T-shirt tent and so much more. All interested volunteers should visit the Volunteer Page for more information about event day roles and responsibilities. If you cannot join the Cedar Crest Team or volunteer, consider showing your support and help us reach our goal by donating to the team. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Literary chills abound in this spine tingling program as Edgar Allan Poe, portrayed by Terry Lynch, gives a brief biographical sketch of his life. The main focus of this program is the retelling of some of Poe's greatest works, including "The Raven" and "The Tell Tale Heart."
Cedar Crest events are usually located on the Terrace Level of the Independent Living apartment areas. It's for your convenience that we recommend you park close to the apartment buildings. There is a surface parking lot connected to the apartments. It can be reached via the first driveway on your right if you are coming from the North (via State St.), or the third driveway on your left if you arrive from the South (via Kellogg Ave). Watch for blue/green flags near the designated driveway. NOTE: GPS systems will route you to the Main Entrance of the Skilled Care Center. Parking near that area will require you to walk farther to the event site than using the convenient access off the apartment parking lot.
