Walk to end Alzheimers to be held at Constellation Field
The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting Fort Bend County residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Constellation Field, 1 Stadium Dr., Sugar Land will be the site of the Walk on Saturday, October 5 at 8 a.m.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It is an experience for thousands of participants in Fort Bend County who will learn about Alzheimer’s disease and how to get involved with this critical cause, from advocacy opportunities, the latest in Alzheimer’s research and clinical trial enrollment to support programs and services. Each walker will also join in a meaningful ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate, increasing well beyond today’s more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s. In addition to the 5K, participants will enjoy family-friendly entertainment and special tributes to those who have experienced or are experiencing Alzheimer’s.
