UMMC to host World Alzheimer's Day balloon launch

The University of Mississippi Medical Center has scheduled a balloon launch for World Alzheimer's Day.  

The MIND Center's Paint It Purple balloon release is set for Wednesday, September 21 at 1 p.m.

UMMC's Memory Impairment Neurodegenerative Dementia (MIND) Center will honor those living with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers in recognition of World Alzheimer's Day.

Participants are invited to write the name of their loved one, either living with Alzheimer's or who lost their life to the disease, on a purple biodegradable balloon and release it in their honor or memory.  Those who attend are also invited to wear purple.

The balloon release will be held in the grassy area in front of Parking Garage A on the UMMC front campus.
