More than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s disease and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. To unite communities across the country, the Alzheimer’s Association holds hundreds of Walks to End Alzheimer’s each year.
The walks take place in more than 600 communities, often in September or October. This fundraiser is not only important to the Alzheimer’s Association, it is important to families who are affected this disease.
To find the date of the walk nearest to you, visit the Alzheimer’s Association’s website. If you are interested in participating, reach out to us and ask to join our team. You can also form your own team. This is a chance to bring together your family, friends, co-workers, social or religious groups, and more organizations, to send your encouragement to those living with the challenges Alzheimer’s presents every day.
Doctors currently have no cure for Alzheimer’s, but they learn more all the time. The funds generated through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s help researchers in their efforts, and it also benefits those already living with the condition.
When you plan for assistance after a surgery for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to think about things before the surgery takes place when possible.
