I've worked at Sunrise Assisted Living of Golden Valley for ten years and throughout those years I've watched hundreds of residents fight this disease every day and felt powerless against it. The Walk to End Alzheimer's is my chance to fight back...for every resident fighting this disease right now and to honor the memory of those residents I've loved and lost. Two things keep me going year after year: 1- the amazing residents I get to spend time with each and every day and 2- the hope that someday we beat this disease that has already taken too many loved ones.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can fight back and we will end Alzheimer's disease. Any donation, no matter the amount helps with this fight. Funds raised go towards advancing the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
