I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
I'm also doing this walk for my Grandmother. She has dementia and most of the time, everyday is a new day for her. She doesn't remember what happened yesterday, good or bad. We are lucky that she still has spunk and can remember who we are, however her dementia does have its negative effects on not only her, but everyone around her. I'm very thankful that she only shows some symptoms of dementia and she is still able to be fully functional. I know it is probably too late to find a cure for my Grandmother's generation and those who are suffering now, but raising awareness and funding research can only help for the future. I love my Grandmother and who she is, and I can't imagine how it feels to lose a loved one to full fledged Alzheimer's. Please help in finding a end to this terrible disease.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
