Walk to End Alzheimer’s is Thursday

Alzheimer's Website

The annual Quincy Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held at 6pm Thursday at Clat Adams Park in Quincy. Registration begins at 5pm with Country Market providing a free picnic for all walkers.  Last year, more than 680 people participated and raised $70,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association-Quincy Branch. This money is vital to funding the branch’s programs and services for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their families. More than 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, which is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

Everyone is welcome, and donations are appreciated. Participants are encouraged to register online or by calling the Quincy Branch toll free at 800.272.3900. All participants who raise $100 or more will receive a commemorative Walk to End Alzheimer’s T-shirt. And for every $100 raised, each person’s name will be entered into a drawing for an iPad 3. Visit alz.org/illinoiscentral to learn more about the Quincy Walk.

Being a founding board member for the local Alzheimer’s Association, I have seen this walk grow significantly over the years. Hopefully, in my lifetime, there will be a need to cancel this event because a cure has been found.  I truly believe they are getting closer and closer to that happening. The walk to celebrate that event,” The Walk that Ended Alzheimer’s” will be monumental.
