The Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is on.
The impact of Alzheimer’s disease is a growing concern, affecting an ever−increasing number of families. The EdwardJones Strategic Alliance with the Alzheimer’s Association® is one way the firm helps protect and preserve our clients’health, relationships and financial goals.
The relationship is focused on providing full−mission support to the Alzheimer’s Association that broadens awareness,funds research and increases education opportunities to advance care and support for those families impacted byAlzheimer’s disease. Together, we will positively impact society by building communities, advancing treatment anddeepening knowledge to improve early detection. In the first six years of our strategic alliance, we have raised more than$30 million and more than 85,000 clients, colleagues and their families walked with us. We have committed to raise $50million by the end of 2025.
The COVID−19 environment is unpredictable and continues to impact our communities. During these uncertain times,Edward Jones is taking steps to protect the health and well−being of clients, associates, families and communities. TheAlzheimer’s Association is planning for a hybrid community walk approach for the 2022 Walk season, including in−personwalks where permitted, and a virtual participation option. Edward Jones’ participation with in−person walks is subject tochange due to the firm’s reopening policy.
Research sponsored by our firm and Age Wave shows that even during the pandemic, Alzheimer’s is more feared thanCOVID−19 and all other life−threatening diseases. That’s why we’re fighting this battle − and you can help.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping. Neither are we. Don’t forget to participate in the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on Saturday, October 14th. Walk with us or walk in your neighborhood. However you choose to walk will bring us one step closer to finding a cure.
