NIAGARA COUNTY WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S IS SET FOR OCTOBER 15

Local residents and businesses are invited to join world’s largest event dedicated to Alzheimer’s care, support and research

 

The Alzheimer’s Association, Western New York Chapter, is inviting Niagara County residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on October 15 at Artpark in Lewiston. The Walk will begin at 11 a.m., with check-in beginning at 10 a.m.

 

On Walk day, participants come together to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s and raise funds that ensure the programs and services provided by the Alzheimer’s Association are free to all who need them. In addition, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony, with the colors of the Promise Garden flowers representing people’s connection to Alzheimer’s – their personal reasons to end the disease.

 

More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease – a leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 11 million family members and friends provide care to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In New York alone, there are more than 410,000 people living with the disease and 580,000 caregivers. 

 

This year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s is presented by Uniland. To register and receive the latest updates on the Niagara County Walk, visit act.alz.org/niagara. To learn more about the planning committee or sponsorship opportunities, contact Lynn Westcott at lwestcott@alz.org or 716.440.4251.
