St. Louis buildings turn purple for Alzheimer’s awareness


ST. LOUIS – Many St. Louis buildings turned purple this weekend for Alzheimer’s awareness.

The annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s was Saturday, but it looked different this year due to the coronavirus.

Opening ceremonies took place online, then an estimated 1,000 walkers went out into their neighborhoods and local parks. Walkers could download a mobile app and send fundraising messages.

Area locations showed their support starting Friday night. The buildings that participated in the purple lights were the Civil Courts Building, Enterprise Center, the St. Louis Wheel at Union Station and the Planetarium.
