Event Description

July 8, 2014 Updated Jul 8, 2014 at 8:23 AM EDT

The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Fort Wayne residents and individuals and companies in the surrounding counties to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. The 2014 Walk will be held on Saturday, September 20 at Headwaters Park, located at 330 South Clinton Street. Participants can now register by visiting alz.org/Indiana.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is more than a walk. It is an experience for all participants to 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.

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. More than 5 million Americans currently live with Alzheimer’s.

Start or join a team today by visiting alz.org/Indiana. For more information, call 800-272-3900.
