STATE –The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting New Jersey residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the scenic three-mile Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® at Liberty State Park on Saturday, Sept. 22, starting at 9 a.m. Opening ceremonies will include a special memorial and honorary tribute to all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
This year’s walk, which is taking place a month earlier than in previous years, is expected to bring in over 2,000 participants.
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 estimated 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s.
