The Alzheimer’s Association raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Alzheimer’s is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States with one in three seniors dying from Alzheimer’s or another dementia. There are more than 5 million American’s living with the disease and more than 15.9 million caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the United States.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s ® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. In New Jersey we have six walks… Please go to www. alz.org/walk to find a Walk near you.
