Walk to End Alzheimer's will be at FDMS Saturday

Walk to End Alzheimer's

On Nov. 3 Regional Park will be hosting Ardmore's first ever Walk to End Alzheimers.

The Walk is the world's largest Alzheimer's event, said WJAC announcer Sabrina Silva on the park stage. Since 1989, the Alzheimer's Association mobilized millions of Americans in the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk®; now the Alzheimer's Association is continuing to lead the way with Walk to End Alzheimer's. Previous year there were over 800 walkers and $84,000 was raised. In the United States, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, the sixth-leading cause of death in and the only disease among the top 10 causes that can not be cured, prevented or even slowed.

"Each year, we see an increase in the number of people affected by the disease", said event co-chair Trisha Elliott. "Alzheimer's is destroying our families, our finances, and our future, and it is time to end it".

Speakers shared stories of their mothers and fathers who suffered and died from dementia or Alzheimer's, and shed a few tears on stage.

Before the walk, a "promise garden ceremony" was held in which participants made a commitment to fulfill their promises to remember and honor their loved ones fighting Alzheimer's Disease. People planted their flowers in the grass following the walk. Another St. Marys woman, who is now battling cancer, also sent her appreciation to the audience and the cause.

Join the fight for Alzheimer's first survivor.
