Alzheimer's Memory Walk

My family has been touched by Alzheimer's, has yours?
It is a dreadful disease and only through ongoing research can we hope to find a cure for this. When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer's it is not only something that will affect them but the entire family and circle of friends.

You can help though by participating in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk which is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Volunteers of all ages come together and become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's. More than 600 communities are participating by hosting walks which are typically 2-3 miles in length and held on a weekend morning in the fall.

Team up with the Alzheimer's Association help to move us closer to a world without Alzheimer's! Together, we can make a difference!

Just visit the site and enter your zip code to find a walk near you. There isn't one? That is ok what about a virtual walk or support one of the other walks with a donation. Even our troops overseas are involved! There is a way you can participate!
