WRDE host Anthony Joseph to emcee Walk to End Alzheimer's Sept. 30

September 25, 2017

When as many as 500 people gather at Grove Park to participate in the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter annual Rehoboth Beach Walk to End Alzheimer's, Saturday, Sept. 30, they will be greeted by a familiar face: Anthony Joseph of the walk's television presenting sponsor, WRDE-NBC Coast TV. Joseph, a Sussex County native, is the station's sports journalist. WRDE-TV is a first-time sponsor of the Rehoboth walk. Check-in begins in Grove Park at 8:30 a.m., followed by the Promise Garden Ceremony at 9:45 a.m. The Walk to End Alzheimer's along the Boardwalk will begin at 10:15 a.m.

In an added feature to the Promise Garden Ceremony, 2-year old Bodie Reilly will hold a single white flower. The toddler is the son of Dewey Beer Co. owner and head brewer Michael Reilly and his wife Kim, who lost her father John Angus to Alzheimer's disease. The Reillys say his loss continues to be the biggest reason why they dedicate themselves to supporting the Alzheimer's cause.

On the day of the walk, there will be sponsor tables filled with promotional materials and giveaways for walkers to take home. Entertainment will include live music performed by '60s and '70s band Imaginea and a Princess Belle character. Snack from Redner's Markets and coffee from Arena's will be provided.

For more information or to register, go to www.alz.org/walk or call the chapter's toll-free 24/7 helpline at 800-272-3900.
