It may be sunny July, and most of us are not thinking about an event set for the fall, but the time to start planning is now.
For many communities, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be happening before you know it. This annual fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association is very important to the entire Homewatch CareGivers network, which is why we want to encourage you to start your participation now.
If you go to the Alzheimer’s Association’s website, you can find the walk nearest you and the date. Many walks take place either in September or October. Once you find your walk, you can start your own team or join an existing team. You should also reach out to your local Homewatch CareGivers office and ask to join our Walk to End Alzheimer’s team.
The Walks to End Alzheimer’s are large annual events to raise awareness and support for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. More than 600 communities across the U.S. hold walks. It is an opportunity for families, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups, and many more to band together to show their support.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. This disease causes dementia and has no cure. Homewatch CareGivers helps hundreds of people with the condition across the country as they cope with the symptoms while continuing to live in their own homes. This is why it is so important for us to show our support.
So please, join us in our efforts to support and cheer on the Alzheimer’s Association.
