Hard to believe it has been ten years since my father, Bernie Goldberg, passed away from complications of Alzheimer's. As I have done every year since his passing, I will again be walking in his memory to support the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. This year's walk will look a little different due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Instead of gathering as a crowd and walking together in one location, each individual participant or team will walk in their own neighborhood, wearing a purple walk T-shirt or carrying a sign in support of the Alzheimer's Association. This will allow us to bring our message of Alzheimer's awareness to neighborhoods throughout the country.
The pandemic has heightened the importance of the work of the Alzheimer's Association. The elderly and individuals with underlying conditions are especially vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus. Currently, almost 6 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 am asking for your support to help me fulfill my commitment to the association! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
