The 2020 Westchester Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place virtually on or around October 4, 2020. We will announce shortly where the Bet Torah Walk team will be walking.
While we see promising progress, there still continues to be a very strong demand for the search for a cure for Alzheimer's Disease. While we hear and see progress is being made, the solution to this very serious quest continues to be elusive. We read regularly about many "almost there" answers, and new paths to another solution are always being discussed. But the reality is that much more research is needed, and thus more money needs to be raised to reach the goal of a cure by 2025.
Caring for those stricken with Alzheimer's has always been an important reason behind my volunteer involvement with the Association. I have attended many gatherings and events where I see how the Hudson Valley Chapter volunteers and staff make a REAL difference in the lives of those needing care and their caregivers. Our chapter, through the Covid-19 pandemic, continues to enhance these activities which are so very important to those in need of our support, and as you might expect, funds are also needed to continue these important efforts.
Our family continues to support the Alzheimer's Association and, this year, the more localized Walks to End Alzheimer's. Why? Because for 10 years I watched my mother-in-law, Alice Sullivan, suffer with this hideous disease until she died from Alzheimer’s. My Mom, Beatrice Klar, also suffered from dementia and I remember only too well the day she did not recognize me...long before I was ready to accept that reality.
By 2050, statistics tell us that 16 million people will be suffering from Alzheimer's. I want to do everything that I can to insure that my children and grand-children, and yours, will not have to deal with either caring for family members who have Alzheimer's or need to worry about not being treated with the cure for Alzheimer's. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this devastating disease.
As I always do, I appeal to you for your support. I know that this is a very difficult time for so many of us, but, if you can, please join our Bet Torah team, Walk with us, raise your awareness of Alzheimer's and donate if you are able. The end of Alzheimer’s starts here – with a gift from you. Thank you for your anticipated support. To support my efforts, Please go to....
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
