A walk for a cause

One of the disease that afflicts individuals over 65 years old is the Alzheimer. It is estimated that 26.6 million people worldwide were afflicted by Alzheimer's disease in 2006 which could quadruple by 2050. Alzheimer's is a degenerative and terminal disease for which there is no known cure. Sounds scary! huh! Because Alzheimer's disease cannot be cured and is degenerative, management of the Alzheimer's patient is essential. One of the sensible way of managing the disease is by exercise, mental stimulation and exercise. No wonder some Americans pay for caregivers to take care of their love ones who had Alzheimer's disease. We know that there are ways we could help prevent this kind of disease. Maybe, we could help raise funds for research on how to cure AD patients. Why not also join a charity or community that has something to do with raising funds for the AD patients. One of this association is Alzheimer's Memory Walk . You're not only helping you're love ones who got this disease but you'll also help others as well. By teaming up with the Alzheimer's Association, you can walk with a purpose – and move us closer to a world without Alzheimer's. Together, we can MOVE a nation. So, if you want to help. Please visit the website and participate in the event. Why not be one of the team captains of this walk. You will really a big help for preventing Alzheimer's disease.

The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk® is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research – and it calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's. There are walks in more than 600 communities. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall.
