Alzheimer’s Walk is Aug. 29 at Adams County Fairgrounds

Generous individuals are being asked to “move” in support of the fight against Alzheimer’s disease at the 2015 Adams, Brown,and Highland Counties Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the Adams County Fairgrounds in West Union on Saturday, Aug. 29. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and the Walk begins at 10 a.m.

As the primary national fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is an annual event that brings the community together to remember and support those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Proceeds from the event will directly fund programs and services of the Southeastern Ohio branch office of the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati, serving families in Adams, Brown and Highland counties. Association programs and services are provided free of charge.

“Alzheimer’s disease touches many families in Adams, Brown and Highland counties. The Walk is a way for the community to come together in support of these families and the important services and programs we provide as a chapter, said Diana Bosse, Special Events Manager with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only disease in the top 10 without an effective treatment or form of prevention. Today, more than 5 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to more than double within the next 20 years.

Last year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s in West Union attracted nearly 240 walkers and raised $37,500.

For more information or to register for the walk, contact Ms. Bosse at (800) 272-3900 or email: dbosse@alz.org. You can also register on-line by visiting the Chapter’s web site at www.alz.org/cincinnati.
