Hi!! My names Chloe Edgin. Im 14 years old and I’ve been walking the Alzheimer’s Walk for 9 years with my stepmother who works for East Tennessee Personal Care Service, and they have been a great support. But this year I would like to start my own team with a couple of friends so I can support my Grandfather Ewell Cline and also my Uncle Tony Cline. I am really excited about walking this year. Alzheimer’s has always been a disease that I have truly given all my heart to along with God. Starting my own team this year would make me really greatful.
If you are interested in joining Chloe’s Team on Sat, April 9th, please feel free to contact us at 865-692-2200.

PURPOSE:TO SUPPORT THOSE LIVING WITH ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE There’s only one Knoxville Alzheimer’s WALK from which 100% of the donations benefit Tennesseans. Alzheimer’s Tennessee is an independent, 501c3 not-for-profit organization that has been in the community for more than 30 years serving those facing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, promoting brain health through education, and championing global prevention and treatment efforts.
THE WALK:The event itself is a Saturday morning filled with celebration!
Participants find LIVE musical entertainment, FREE food, door prizes, and fun for all ages. Even pets are included! The WALK is optional, and the distance is approximately 1½ miles.
Most donations are secured prior to the WALK and turned in on or before the day of the WALK.
Pre-registered WALKers who raise $50 will qualify for a t-shirt (distributed to eligible WALKers at the WALK). More incentives are available for WALKers who raise $100, $200 or more.
Participants may continue turning in funds for at least 30 days following the event. Final fundraising totals will determine Top Prize winners who are recognized, along with Corporate Sponsors, at an Appreciation Lunch.
