SAS was out in full force on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at Museum Park in downtown Miami for the 2015 Walk to Raise Alzheimer Awareness. Flowers were planted that at the end of the walk that carried with them varied significances. There were colored flowers to signify those who had lost someone to Alzheimer disease, a color to signify those who support the cause, a distinct color for a person who knows someone with the disease, and a flower to signify a person who serves as a caregiver to a person suffering with the disease. Individuals could write a message on their particular colored flower and then plant it in the "Promise Garden".
