We are walking to help end Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and is the only one of the top 10 causes that cannot currently be prevented, cured, or even slowed. It is also the most expensive disease in America. In 2017 Alzheimer's disease and other dementias will cost the US $259 billion. By 2050, that number is expected to climb to $1.1 trillion.
That's why we're doing what we can to fight. We raise money in honor of those currently living with an Alzheimer's diagnosis, and in memory of those we have lost to this disease. We do all of this so that some day soon, we will see Alzheimer's first survivor.
Please consider joining our team or making a donation toward the Alzheimer's Association's vital care, support, and research programs.
The end of Alzheimer's starts with us.
