My mother Barbara suffered from Alzheimer’s for many years before her passing in May of 2019. She is the reason I feel so strongly about this cause. This is why I walk.
Throughout our communities, countless people and their families are touched by Alzheimer’s. In America alone, there are an estimated 6.2 million adults now living with this devastating disease, and this number doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. These are our parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and our community members.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
