Kristie Miner, Kindred Westgate and Eastern Maine Walk to End Alzheimer’s talks about the walk and the Promise Garden.

The promise garden has been a big part of our opening ceremonies for the past 2 years.

Register for the Walk on October 5th: at or by calling 1-800-272-3900.

All who register will receive a brightly colored nylon flower on which to write a personal thought, a loved one,s name or something else meaningful to them. When walkers arrive, they can choose a flower that symbolizes their relationship to Alzheimer,s. There are four colors to symbolize four unique situations.

–Blue flowers: I have Alzheimer’s.

–Yellow flowers: I am supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.

–Purple flowers: I have lost someone to Alzheimer’s.

–Orange flowers: I support the cause and a vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.

These flowers become part of a beautiful garden known as the Promise Garden of hope.
