With the recent heat advisories, running or walking outside doesn’t sound very exciting. However, Alzheimer’s Arkansas has an event this Saturday that will be refreshing and help fund programs for caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease. Matt Elmore, executive director of Alzheimer’s Arkansas, is here with us today to tell us how people can cool down this weekend.
Alzheimer’s Arkansas is excited to host its first H2GO 2-mile walk/run at the Little Rock Air Force Base this Saturday, July 20. This family-friendly event will help Arkansans conquer the heat!
This event is open for all ages and you do not have to run the route.
So how did this run come about? It really sounds refreshing!
As there are so many amazing runs for local nonprofits, we wanted to do something different and wanted our run to stand out.
