NARFE October
Together, we're making great strides in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. As a Walk to End Alzheimer's® national team, NARFE member teams have raised an incredible $65,000 thus far! It's not too late to spread the word and invite your friends, family and community members to support NARFE's initiative, even if your Walk has already taken place! Funds raised will count toward the overall goal of $14 million and can be collected until Dec. 31.

Fundraising ideas from A to Z
Walk to End Alzheimer's fundraising can be as simple or extravagant as you want and the possibilities are endless! Fundraisers can be anything from a wine and cheese party for close friends, a garage sale, a jeans or "Go Purple" day at the office, donating a percentage of sales for a week or a fun game night with loved ones. Check out this full list for fundraising ideas from A-Z! Learn more.

Lack of sleep in Hispanics may increase Alzheimer's risk
New research suggests that Hispanics who don't get enough sleep may be at an increased risk of memory problems and possibly Alzheimer's. While additional research is needed, scientists said the findings are important because Hispanics already have a higher risk of Alzheimer's compared to non-Hispanic whites, and Hispanics with sleep issues may benefit from early intervention.
