On September 16th the Walk to End Alzheimer's will be held at Clat Adams Park in Quincy. If you would like to walk or raise money for the Alzheimer's Association, simply sign up as a team or an individual and the Alzheimer's Association will help you reach your goal.

Recruit people to help you by asking co-workers, family, and friends to support your mission. If you would like to register as a team or an individual, you can sign up here. Then make plans to attend the Walk to End Alzheimer's in September. Registration will be at 8:00 am followed by a short ceremony at 8:45. The walk begins at 9:00.

Many of us have someone in our lives that has battled (or is currently battling) Alzheimer's Disease. My personal experience happened with my grandmother. While she struggled, she thought I was my baby sister. It was hard to see such a strong-willed person not remember her own family members.

If you would like to know more on how you can help the Alzheimer's Association, you can contact them at 217-641-0141.
