The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Jackson area residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Mississippi Museum of Art, Art Garden will be the site of the Walk on September 15, 2012 at 9:00a.m.
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate, increasing well beyond today’s estimated 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s. Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It is an experience for more than 500 expected participants in the Jackson area who will learn about Alzheimer's disease and how to get involved with this critical cause, from advocacy opportunities, the latest in Alzheimer’s research and clinical trial enrollment to support programs and services. In addition, participants will enjoy a special tribute from our Walk’s Honorary Mission Chair, Gail Brown.
