Alzheimer’s Walk Set for LCCC Sept. 9

The Alzheimer’s Association ® is inviting Northeast Ohio residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

The Walk will take place on Saturday morning, September 9 at Lorain County Community College in Elyria. Entry begins at 9:00 am and the Walk will begin promptly at 10:15 am.

Participants will complete a one or three mile walk and will learn about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services from the Alzheimer’s Association – Cleveland Chapter. Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

Hearing the words Alzheimer’s disease brings a chill to many people – especially our senior community – as it is estimated that one in three seniors will die from it or another dementia related illness. Today, more than six million Americans live with the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association is a worldwide voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to fight the disease. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease by participating in Walks across the country. Entry begins at 9:00 am and the Walk will begin promptly at 10:15 am.

Register today. Sign up as a Team Captain, join a team or register to walk as an individual at act.alz.org/lorain.
