JOIN OUR TEAM!

By participating, we're committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support. This year we will participate in the walk with family and friends. Our goal is to raise $4,000 before the Walk in November.

We need your support to do our part! 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.

Some staggering facts and figures about Alzheimer's:

* 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia * Over 6 million Americans have Alzheimer's * Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death * Alzheimer's is the most costly disease in the U.S. * It is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent it, cure it or even slow its progression * It kills more than Breast & Prostate Cancer combined *

Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

THANK YOU for joining our movement and supporting our efforts! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
