I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care, and support.
I watched what Alzheimer's disease can do to families for 10-12 years. It has been three years since I lost my Mom to Alzheimer's. I saw the affect it had on her life. It robbed her of her faith, laugh, and her smile. During the last 6 to 8 months of her life, she didn't have any idea who I was. Two of her sisters and a brother also died from the complications from Alzheimer's. My dad died of dementia but he had 2 sisters who died of complications of Alzheimer's disease. I have a greater chance of getting the disease because of my family history. Walking raises money for research and that's what we need.
Currently, more than 5 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 need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
