My name is Morgan Moises Lopez and this year I decided to make a difference by chairing this years Walk to End Alzheimer's for the island of Kauai.
Before joining the Alzheimer's Association Team, there was so much that I didn't know about this disease. As I learn more about it, I realize that my decision to chair this event was the best decision I've made. I am dedicated to do my best to assist this year and hope that you will join me in my efforts.
Here are some mind blowing statistics:
- Alzheimer's Disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. It kills more than breast cancer & prostate cancer combined.
- 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia
- Alzheimer's and dementia deaths have increased by 16% during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease.
Families facing Alzheimer's and all other dementia need us now more than ever - and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
