The opportunity to help those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is steps away. The Alzheimer’s Association and Findlay Walk to End Alzheimer’s Committee are gearing up for this event where participants will walk to raise money for Alzheimer’s care, research and support. Alzheimer’s disease is now the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and organizers hope to make a difference for the five million Americans living with the illness. The event will feature lunch provided by Birchaven Village, a basket raffle and a ceremony to recognize those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Take your first step toward bettering the lives of Alzheimer’s patients.
Saturday, October 5, 9:30-10:30am. Registration is free. The walk will be held at The Koehler Center at The University of Findlay.
1000 N. Main St. Findlay. Call Toni Schindler at 419-537-1999 for more information or visit alz.org/walk to register.
