Photo gallery: 1,600 walkers in Point Loma help raise over $350,000 to fight Alzheimer’s


The 2022 San Diego Walk to End Alzheimer’s set out at Liberty Station’s NTC Park in Point Loma on Oct. 8 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

Nearly 1,600 people participated, helping to raise more than $353,000 as of Oct. 12.

Participants honored those who have been affected by Alzheimer’s with the customary Promise Garden ceremony, with colored plastic flowers representing people’s personal reasons for seeking to end the progressive brain disease.

A purple flower means you have lost someone to Alzheimer’s; a yellow flower means you are a caregiver to someone with Alzheimer’s; a blue flower means you are living with Alzheimer’s; an orange flower means you support the Alzheimer’s Association; and a white flower expresses hope for a cure.
