The Walk to End Alzheimer’s occurs across the country annually in over 600 communities to raise funds and awareness in this battle against Alzheimer’s and other dementia's. The individuals who walk, their teams, and their supporters, have experienced loved ones being lost to this devastating disease and know the impact it has to so many. We all walk to urgently change impact of the disease and make sure that others do not go through the same experience.
Our OneFamily team continues the fight in this battle against this disease and will be walking in the Nashville area, along with teams in IL, KY, and WI on November 6, 2021. We have been touched by losing multiple loved ones to this disease and have seen the impact it has on so many. We continue the fight for those with the disease and to remember those in our family lost to the disease, including aunt Dolores Shappert, aunt Josephine Cummings, uncle Henry A Fischer, uncle Bill Cummings, Barbara Satala, Margie Graziano, Marge Noettl, Betty Schaeffer, Hugh/Maureen N., Bettye McMillan, and Huey N. We participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's so that someday soon no family member, or loved one, experiences this disease.
Currently, Alzheimer's is 6th leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 in America that can't be prevented, cured, or even slowed. The trends below continue to increase and therefore your help is even more critical:
- In this country alone, someone develops Alzheimer's every 65 seconds and currently more than 6 million Americans are living with the disease
- In the United States alone, Alzheimer's and dementia deaths have increased 16% during the Covid-19 pandemic
- In 2020 over 11 million American caregivers provided an estimated 15.3 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $257 billion
- Between 2000 AND 2019, deaths from heart disease have decreased 7.3% while deaths from Alzheimer's have increased 145%
What if you could help reverse these trends and create the beautiful day happen when we have the first survivor? The fund raising through the walk provides ongoing support for those battling Alzheimer’s and to contribute to the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association, supporting organizations, and advocates in changing the trajectory of this life and memory stealing disease to find a cure.
