End Alzheimer’s walk set today
Ashland area residents will be participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s today in Central Park. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m.
Walk to End Alzheimer's participants will learn more about Alzheimer's disease symptoms and treatments, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment, and local support programs and services. Each walker also will join in a meaningful Memory Garden ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease.
Funds raised here go for local workshops and other support services, as well as for national research toward treatments and a cure for the disease, which is the sixth-leading cause of death in America.
