Our PLACE Walk 2 Remember & Car Show October 7

Diane Strever for Our PLACE

The  Our PLACE Walk 2 Remember & Car Show  will take place at  Lenoir City Park  on October 7, 2023 from 10-2. Proceeds will be used by Our PLACE to support their daily programs and help raise funds for an expansion. The expansion is being driven by the overwhelming success of Our PLACE during its first year and the growing need to help more families impacted by Alzheimer’s and other Dementia related diseases in our community. As we’ve had time to “live” in our space at Our PLACE, we have recognized ways that we can refine our program needs and double the number of participants we can serve. As we support the expansion and programming at Our PLACE, as well as continue our outreach and resources for caregivers, our hope is that you realize “You Never Walk Alone.”

This year’s Walk 2 Remember is a combined effort of Our PLACE, two local Rotary Clubs (Tellico Village & Lenoir City), and several local car clubs, including the Tellico Village Car Club. Dozens of volunteers from these organizations, and many others in the local area, will help to support this effort.  Visit www. walk2remember.net  for more information and register to walk as an individual or put together a team.

This will be a fun day of activities for the entire family! Cars, food trucks, music and much more!

Event Schedule:

>> 9:00 am: Cars for the Car Show will begin to arrive and set up. During the morning, spectators will vote on their favorite cars in certain categories.

>> 9:30 am: Other activities will begin, with music by the band Jazz Suspects, hits of the 60’s and 70’s, while team members arrive and check in for the Walk.

>> 10:00 – 2:00: Children can enjoy a Bounce House, an Obstacle Course, face painting, and clowns.

Food trucks, Mucho Gusto, and Bootleggers Roadside Ice Cream, will be available during the event hours.

>> 11:00 am: The band Pistol Creek Catch of the Day will entertain the crowd with Mountain Music.

>> 1:00 pm: Closing Ceremony to announce awards from the Car Show and the Walk 2 Remember.

The Walk will consist of 1/2-mile and 1-mile walk options, beginning at 10 am. We encourage all participants to form teams to help raise funds for this event, which will further the expansion of Our PLACE. For more information on how to form a team please check www.walk2remember.net. Individual walkers are also appreciated.

If you would you like to be a Team Liaison and serve a key role for this year’s Walk 2 Remember, we would love to have you participate in this role. All efforts as we walk together in this event will help us serve a greater number of individuals impacted by Alzheimer’s and Dementia related diseases in our community. Please join us to raise awareness and dollars for Our PLACE, and for those that are welcomed as part of this growing community program.
