While the world has become paralyzed with the uncertainty of this virus, the work at the Alzheimers Association is moving forward at a rapid and enthusiastic clip to make our annual walk a fun and successful event. Imagine 300 teams with over 2000 walkers, all walking on the morning of 10/24 in their neighborhoods in MD spreading the word! It will be quite a sight, and lots of fun being creative. I have set a large goal of raising $25K and all of the funds will go towards the Baltimore Canton walk.
Besides having a personal connection to this disease, I am now trying to educate corporations about how this disease can impact their employees' productivity. It has an obvious impact when the employee has been diagnosed, but equally important is the toll it takes on the caregivers, who many times have to quit their jobs to care for loved ones. There is now evidence that taking care of your brain can also slow the disease down.
The Association and all of the volunteers are dedicated to:
oTransforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will strive to create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
DON’T JUST HOPE FOR A CURE……HELP US FIND ONE!
