I'm walking and volunteering to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the 2019 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.

More than 5 million people in America have Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the US.

This is the 8th year I've been on the Rochester Walk Committee and 12th year I've participated in a walk. I've seen first hand how it affects the individuals with the disease and their families. I'm so happy I can do my part to help fine a cure and support individuals affected with dementia.
We would love for you to join our team. If you can't join our team, please join your local walk. Please support research and education about the disease.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
