2012 Walk to End Alzheimer's
On October 6, more than 700 residents from Treasure Valley joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and united in a movement to reclaim the future for millions Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park. Participants doubled the amount raised last year to fund Alzheimer's care, support and research programs.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants did more than complete the three mile Walk. They learned more about Alzheimer’s disease and the Association’s critical role in the fight against it, including the latest about Alzheimer’s research and current clinical trials, how they can become involved in advocacy efforts at home and in Washington, DC and the Association’s support programs and services. The event also included an emotional tribute to those who have experienced or are experiencing Alzheimer’s.
We were inspired by all our residents uniting in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease at Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Additionlly, we are thankful to all of our wonderful corporate sponsors in the area. With their help, the Alzheimer’s Association will be able to provide much needed care and support to people affected by the disease as well as fund critically needed Alzheimer’s research.
