Alzheimer’s disease afflicts millions of Americans, their families and their caregivers. This past Saturday, September 28 about 700 of you stepped in to do something about it. You raised over $84,000 at the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the University of Mary Washington. On behalf of everyone who struggles with Alzheimer’s, we thank you.
Alzheimer’s disease is our nation’s sixth leading cause of death, leaving more than five million Americans feeling helpless. You gave them hope. By taking part in the nation’s largest event to fight Alzheimer’s, you donated your time and efforts toward finding a cure for this disease.
Thank you to everyone who participated. Thank you to all the volunteers and everyone at Mary Washington. And thank you to the community.
But let’s not stop now. The battle against Alzheimer’s disease goes on every day. Find out more about the work of the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org. And once again, for everyone who made a difference this past Saturday, thank you.
