Alzheimer's Disease | Join the Memory Walk

Alzheimer's Memory Walk is one of the nation's largest event in raising awareness, as well as funds to help people with Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is not an easy thing for the patient, as well as his family, relatives, and loved ones. It usually starts at around 40s and 50s. The person suffering from Alzheimer's Disease begins to lose memory. It progresses to impaired thought and speech, and ultimately, helplessness. Imagine losing your important memories one by one. The most recent memories usually are affected first. Alzheimer’s disease is fatal. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Sadly, even with our highly developed technologies, there is still no cure.

Calling volunteers from all ages to help in the fight against Alzheimer's. There are 2-3 mile walks in more than 600 communities held on a weekend morning in the fall. Participating in the walk will help raise funds to be used in support and research.

Hoping to see you there!
