Citrus County’s Walk Aware for Alzheimer’s is returning Floral City October 15. The event, in its sixth year, raises funds for the Citrus-based Dementia Education Inc., a nonprofit organization that supports Citrus County families living with dementia.
The Walk, for which the Floral City Heritage Council is a promotional partner, has been developed around the beauty and history of this scenic old Florida village. Walkers can choose between a nature walk on the scenic Withlacoochee State Trail or a stroll through the historical region of Floral City which includes an opportunity to visit the Duval-Metz House, which is the oldest existing residential structure in Citrus County, and the Floral City Heritage Museum.
Members of the Heritage Council, dressed in 19th century costumes, will be on hand to greet walkers in the Town Center, where the Walk begins.
Individual entry fees are only $20 per person – and sponsorships from Citrus County businesses range from $250 to $1,000. Walkers and walking teams can register from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. the morning of the event, or register in advance on line at https://challenge.dementiaedu.org. Sponsorship information is available from Janice Martin at 352-477-1866 or via e-mail email@example.com.
Headquarters for the Walk is the Floral City Town Center at 8370 East Orange Avenue. Registration opens at 8 a.m., opening ceremonies begin at 9 a.m., and the Walk begins at 9:30. There will be live music, Bar-B-Q prepared on site, free on-site memory screenings, prizes, and a dementia awareness photo exhibit at the Public Library nearby. Activities will conclude by noon.
Citrus Walk Aware for Alzheimer’s is an Event designed for Everyone
Debbie Selsavage explains, “This event is designed for everyone. The two walks are short, easy, and very scenic. We also keep the entry fee donation very low so anyone can afford to participate.”
