Alzheimer’s Association sponsoring fundraising walk

Hundreds of Augusta County-area residents will unite at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton on Saturday, Oct. 29, in a movement to reclaim the future for millions at the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

In 2010 the Staunton Memory Walk raised $50,000, contributing to more than $42.2 million raised by participants nationwide for care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer’s.

The goal for this year’s walk is $66,000.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants will be able to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment, and support programs and services. Each walker will also join in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
