Celebrate Grandparents Day on Sept. 8 at Portland International Raceway

The Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter will celebrate National Grandparents Day on Sept. 8 with a Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Thousands of Portland-area residents are expected to attend the event, which will be held at Portland International Raceway. Registration will begin at noon and the walk will begin at 2 p.m.

Participants will be able to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment and support programs and services. Each walker also will be able to join a tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The event also will feature a classic car show, activities for children and a care community bus parade.

Walkers will receive a Promise Garden flower to mark their commitment to remember, to honor, to care and to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Participants will receive their choice of a colored flower to represent their reason for participating in the event, whether they have Alzheimer’s, support or care for someone with the disease, lost someone to Alzheimer’s or support the cause.

Start or join a team online by visiting or call Kara Busick at 503-416-0209.
