Alzheimer’s association walk to end alzheimer’s

September 27, 2015
Reinbeck Courier

The Alzheimer's Association is inviting Waterloo residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's. The Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place on Saturday, September 26 at the RiverLoop Amphitheatre in Waterloo starting at 9:30 a.m.

The Walk to End Alzheimer's is more than a walk. It is an experience for 300 participants in Waterloo who will learn about Alzheimer's disease and how to get involved with this critical cause, from advocacy opportunities and clinical studies enrollment to support programs and services. Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

In addition to the two mile walk, participants will enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment as well as a special tribute to those who have experienced or are experiencing Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's disease is a growing epidemic and the nation's sixth-leading cause of death. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer's disease will rapidly escalate, increasing well beyond today's more than 5 million Americans to as many as 16 million by 2050.

To start or join a team today, please visit the Alzheimer's Association website at alz.org/walk. To learn more about the disease and available resources, call the toll-free Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
