This year, we are participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on Sept. 12 to raise awareness and funds to advance the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we change the course of this devastating disease. And there’s something you can do about it — walk with us.
The end of Alzheimer’s starts with you. To register, visit our page and click “join my team.”
