Alzeimer's Memory Walk for Charity
It is the time of year again! We all can do something meaningful for our society! Remember the Alzeimer's Memory Walk I mentioned here year ago? Before I talk about this meaningful Alzeimer's Memory Walk again, I would like to briefly explain what Alzheimer disease is. It is a progressive, incurable condition that destroys brain cells, gradually causing loss of intellectual abilities, such as memory and extreme changes in personality and behavior. It is a very common disease among older people.

The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. This event held annually in hundreds of communities across the country. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall. Since 1989, Alzeimer's Memory Walk has raised more than $225 million.

Do you want to participate in this meaningful event? If yes, then you are in! Team captains are needed now! You can go to the site and sign up now. As a team captain, you have to start your own team and invite your own team members. There are useful tools available at the site to guide you on the team formation. Don't waste time waiting, Team Captains need to sign up early to ensure they have enough time to recruit a team and raise funds for the great cause! Let's sign up now as Team Captains, select a walk near you and then start forming your team! Let us move closer to a world without Alzheimer's. Together, we can MOVE a nation.
