Walk to End Alzheimer's is Oct. 7

Oct 01, 2012

Today, more than half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimer's disease.  Soon, no one will be left untouched.

Help to change the course of this disease for future generations.

Participate in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, at Lake Junaluska.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.  Since 1989, the group has mobilized millions to walk against Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.  Participants walk to support grandparents, parents, spouses, partners, brothers, sisters and friends living with the disease.

The community is encouraged to walk to support millions of caregivers emotionally and financially. Walk to speak up on behalf of all those affected.

Sign up today to walk.  Start a team or join a team.
