22021 Walk Committee
Billy Copelan, Chairman
Saturday, September 25, 2021
This community event brings together businesses and residents from Glynn county and surrounding areas to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's and dementia research and local support services. This family-friendly event takes place at the St. Simons Pier Village and provides something for everyone. Attendees will honor and remember their loved ones in Neptune Park before participating in either a 1-mile or 2-mile walk through beautiful St. Simons. Proceeds from the walk benefit research efforts through the Goizueta Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at Emory University, one of 27 active centers in the nation supported by the National Institutes of Health and local support services provided by Memory Matters Glynn, a local independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering education, social activities for persons with memory impairment, individual consultations, memory screening and support groups in Glynn County.
