We are a national Friends and Family Team. You can Give here; you can Join here; or both.
You may have heard of us from an actor or artist, but you don't need to be one to join. If you are an actor or artist, great: this is the affinity team for you, your family, your friends – EVERYONE is welcome!
If you just want to give, please, please do so.
WHY I WALK
As a performer, I'm walking with the Actors & Artists Unite Team because my Mom has Alzheimer's, and my Dad's life is now devoted primarily to her condition and to her care. Mom worked for 42 years as a Special Education clinician and supervisor, whereby she helped so many children during an extraordinary tenure. Now it's time to help people like her.
...time to help reclaim the future for millions of people hit directly or indirectly by this expensive and extensive disease. By participating in the 2013 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support – both through the Alzheimer's Association's programs, and through its political advocacy work.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's, and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million people by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I – and the team as a whole – need your support to do our part!
Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease – and for all their heroic caregivers who put their own lives second – the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
WHY YOUR GIFT HELPS EVERYONE
Alzheimer's Disease incapacitates people for such a long time. That's why AD is the greatest driver of rising Medicare and Medicaid costs. So if we cure, or delay, this disease, we save the Country money – more money than any other cuts to healthcare spending ever would.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here, with YOU.
