The following are the few easy steps to participate in the event. You need to open your eyes, find a Walk in your community, a pen, register as a team captain, team member or individual. Bring some dollars. Then you are ready to start fundraising and raising awareness. But you need to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and fundraising.
Alzheimer’s disease is an epidemic and no cure. Between 2000 and 2017, deaths from this disease have increased 145 percent – two-thirds are women. One in three senior citizens dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. More than five million Americans are living with the disease.
The United States has more than 16 million caregivers to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In the U.S. someone develops Alzheimer’s disease every 65 seconds. In 2018, the more than 16 million caregivers provided an estimated 18.5 billion hours of unpaid care, a contribution to the country valued at more than $234 billion. Alzheimer's disease will cost the United States $290 billion in the current year. This number is projected to rise to more than $1.1 trillion.
Together with the volunteers and participants to the event, we can end Alzheimer's disease. When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars can help our mission-related initiatives of care, support, and research. Every dollar you contribute benefits those affected by Alzheimer’s disease in your community.
As a global organization, the Alzheimer’s Association is working to advance care, support and research across the world. From person-to-person support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives, the money you contribute makes a difference in the lives of those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
If you are passionate about putting an end to Alzheimer’s disease, then get involved with the Alzheimer’s Association and the Walk to End Alzheimer’s? You can join your local Walk to End Alzheimer’s Planning Committee and help the movement to grow to end Alzheimer’s disease.
As inspiring October activities in Branson, Autism Event at the Titanic Museum and the Walk for Alzheimer’s at Branson Tri-Lakes Area are organized to raise awareness to people affected with autism and Alzheimer’s disease.
