Get ready to beer, run, and raise awareness for Alzheimer’s at the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Peachtree City/Newnan and Cupid Mile.

Join us on February 11th for food, music and running at Abide Brewing Company at 110 Werz Industrial Blvd. from 1pm to 7pm.

The Cupid Mile is a 1-mile drinking race where you drink 12 ounces of beer and run a quarter mile, repeating until you reach the mile. Attendees can then enjoy delicious creations from the Mad Mexican Food Truck and dance to sound light entertainment. All proceeds will be donated to families and used to treat Alzheimer’s patients.

The run started in 2015 but stopped after COVID. Abide Brewery owner Evan Scanlan wants to revive beer.

Missy Kemp of Walk to End Alzheimer’s said, “It’s amazing how many people are affected by this disease.

Kemp said these fundraising efforts are very important to those affected by the disease.

Georgia has 150,000 people over the age of 65 with Alzheimer’s disease. People over the age of 45 experience subjective signs of cognitive decline. Over 300,000 family caregivers face the disease every day. Alzheimer’s Associate statistics show the continued need for public outreach to reduce challenges and enable better quality of life for people with cognitive disabilities and their families.
