Alzheimer's New Jersey's Annual "Walk to Fight Alzheimer's®"

Sunday October 22, 2017
8:30 AM

Educational Testing Service, 660 Rosedale Rd, Princeton, NJ 08540

Alzheimer's New Jersey, formerly known as the Alzheimer's Association Greater New Jersey Chapter, kicks off its "Walk to Fight Alzheimer's" event this fall at locations in Ocean, Hudson, Mercer and Bergen Counties. The walk is the largest event for the organization to raise awareness and funds to support local programs for those impacted by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in New Jersey. One hundred percent of the funds raised by Alzheimer's New Jersey support Garden State individuals and families. 

Alzheimer's New Jersey is a nonprofit organization not affiliated with a national charity whose mission is to provide support, assistance and information to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia and their caregivers in New Jersey.

Each event starts at 8:30 a.m. with registration and light breakfast. T-shirts will be distributed to all participants who raise a minimum of $50. There is no fee to register.

Walk to Fight Alzheimer's teams are made up of families, friends, and co-workers who come together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's New Jersey programs and services, as well as research. Corporate, company and individual sponsorships are welcome. Last year the walks raised more than $750,000 and Alzheimer's New Jersey expects some 10,000 walkers this year.

Fall Foliage Walk, Kingston Greenways Association

Sunday October 22, 2017
2:00 PM

Kingston Greenways Association and Kingston Historical Society co-sponsor this leisurely walk, led by railroad historian John Kilbride. We will start at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park headquarters building and head out along the former Camden & Amboy Railroad right-of-way toward Railroad Avenue. Continuing across Ridge Road as far as the turn to the Cook bridge, we'll retrace our steps, roughly following the former Kingston Branch/Rocky Hill Railroad right-of-way to end at the Kingston Lock-tender's House.

The Lock-tender's House will be open to participants at the end of the walk, where there will be a small exhibit on the "Railroads of Kingston" as well as Paul Kayne's study models of Kingston lock and the "A" frame bridge (once at Kingston). For more information, visit http://kingstongreenways.org/

The event is free, and all are welcome, but RSVPs are appreciated to ensure a sufficient number of handouts. Please email (use "RR Walk" as the subject) if you plan to join us: tari@kingstongreenways.org

For the third year in a row, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail will host the Trail and Treat Ride this coming Sunday, October 22, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Village Park in Lawrence.

"Children six and older are invited on a mile-long ride, with a shorter, approximately quarter-mile, loop for younger children," said LHT Programming and PR Committee Co-chair Jill Young.

"We will offer a variety of Halloween-themed activities including pumpkin painting," added Lindsey Bohra, the other chair of Programming and PR Committee. "The event is free to participants, thanks to Investor's Bank, which is sponsoring the ride by covering the LHT's hosting costs. Other businesses supporting the event as donors include Willis Greenhouse, Starbucks and Wegmans."
