Alzheimer's Disease is a progressive and fatal brain disease and a person suffering from the disease experiences difficulties in communicating, learning, thinking and reasoning. If these symptoms are severe enough, they have a huge impact on a person's work, social activities and family life.

There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's but there have been tremendous advances in Alzheimer's research. Obviously with any research, funds are needed to keep it going and this is where the annual Alzheimer's Memory Walk comes in.

The Alzheimer's Memory Walk is the largest event in the country to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Volunteers are needed to organize these walks in their particular locality. The Memory Walk is usually held on a weekend morning in the fall and it is usually a 2 - 3 mile walk.If you are interested in forming a team and especially being a team captain, more information can be obtained from the Alzheimer's Association website.

Let's all do our part in raising awareness for Alzheimer's and raising funds to help find a cure.
