Walk To End Alzheimer’s This Saturday

KSCB News - October 21, 2014 4:04 pm

The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Southwest Kansas and the Oklahoma Panhandle residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s . Light Park, Jean Randall girl Scout Building will be the site of Walk on October 25, 2014 with registration starting at 11:00, lunch provided at Noon and walk beginning at 1:00 P.M.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It is an experience for 150 participant s in Southwest Kansas who will learn about Alzheimer’s disease and how to get involved with this critical cause , from advocacy opportunities, the latest in Alzheimer’s research and clinical trial enrollment to support programs and services. Each walker will also join in a meaningful ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now 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 living with Alzheimer’s. In addition to the 1 or 2 mile walk , participants will enjoy a free lunch, entertainment and a special tribute to those who have experienced or are experiencing Alzheimer’s. Start or join a team today at alz.org/walk

“There has never been a greater need for the citizens of Southwest Kansas and the Oklahoma Panhandle to join in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease by participating in Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” said Misti Bohl – chairman of the Southwest Kansas Walk , and the Alzheimer’s Association of Central and Western Kansas . “Funds raised will provide care and support services to over 5 million residents or care givers living with Alzheimer’s, while also contributing to advancing critically-needed research.”
