The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® – the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research – is held each year in more than 600 communities nationwide. Next month, the St. Louis Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will hold a Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Sept. 12 starting at Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Ave. in St. Louis and another on Saturday, Sept. 26 starting at St. Charles Community College, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
Both events feature 1- and 3-mile routes, begin with registration at 8 a.m. and are followed by a ceremony at 9 a.m. and the Walk at 9:30 a.m.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S., and while deaths from other major causes are decreasing, the number of deaths due to Alzheimer’s disease are increasing. All funds raised through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are used to further the care, support and research efforts of the nonprofit Alzheimer’s Association.
