Walk to End Alzheimer's- Fox Valley
Walk to #ENDALZ
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles. Nearly 1,125 people from the St. Charles area are expected at this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
Walk participants will complete a 2.5 mile walk and will learn about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services from the Alzheimer’s Association.
Walk participants will also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony. In Illinois alone, there are more than 220,000 people living with the disease and 590,000 caregivers. In the United States, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, the sixth-leading cause of death and the only disease among the top 10 causes that cannot be cured, prevented or even slowed. Additionally, more than 16 million family and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
