Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's is the world's largest fundraiser for Alzheimer's care, support and research. This inspiring event will take place in Murfreesboro on Saturday, November 6th at Gateway Island (behind Murfreesboro Medical Clinic). One of the main sponsors locally is TrustPoint Hospital.

Rutherford County businesses can show their support in the fight to end Alzheimer's by decorating their offices or store fronts in purple September 19th through the 25th. Awards will be given to businesses for the best purple decor and for the most money raised.
