Many of us have or know of  loved one, or have a friend who is experiencing the debilitating effects of Alzheimer's Disease.

Or we are, or know a loving caregiver of someone with Alzheimer's Disease.

In addition to raising awareness in our community, we will also raise funds to advance Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

Let us walk together, to honor and/or remember these loving persons.

Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease.

1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia.

In 2012, 15.4 million caregivers provided more than 17.5 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $216 billion.

Nearly 15% of caregivers for people with Alzheimer's or another dementia are long-distance caregivers.

In 2013, Alzheimer's will cost the nation $203 billion. This number is expected to rise to $1.2 trillion by 2050
