In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November to be National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month! Fewer than 2 million Americans had Alzheimer’s at that time and today, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s has soared to nearly 5.4 million.

The National Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, research and support. To learn more about the Association and the Colorado Chapter, visit: http://www.alz.org/about_us_about_us_.asp

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, research and support. The walk is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide. When you participate in the Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel their mission-related initiatives of care, research and support.

The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Walk is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
