Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. It is the only cause of death in the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
What can be done about Alzheimer’s? The Alzheimer’s Association endeavors to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s event. This event is the largest like it in the world. It calls on participants of all ages and abilities to unite in ending Alzheimer’s.
Our local Fort Wayne Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held at Parkview Field on Saturday, October 6, 2018. There is no fee to register but fundraising is encouraged in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help participants reach their fundraising goal.
Do you want to help end Alzheimer’s? Join our fundraising team. The Walk will be held at Parkview Field, 1301 Ewing St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802 on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and the ceremony at 11:30 a.m. with the Walk immediately after. If you can’t make it to the Walk, you can donate to our team in support of Alzheimer’s. Your funds will be used to further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts with you.
