The 6th Annual Chatham County Alzheimer’s Walk and 5K Run will be held Saturday, September 10, at Galloway Ridge at Fearrington in Pittsboro. The event has something for the whole family, including a Fun Run for children ages 4-11. Among other activities are a resource fair, music, and food vendors. Pre-registration is now open.

Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. Walks held around the state offer a chance for caregivers and individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia to connect with resources in their community and find support from one another. They also raise much-needed funding.

“Funds raised from events like these allow us to continue our programs and services to families in North Carolina while focusing attention on the needs of the more than 175,000 North Carolinians diagnosed with Alzheimer’s,” says Alice Watkins, Executive Director of Alzheimer’s NC. An estimated 5.4 million Americans have the disease at an annual cost of more than $200 billion in lost wages, insurance, productivity, and other areas.

Alzheimer’s North Carolina provides education, programs and services, advocacy, emergency respite, and research funding for cause, prevention, treatment, and cure. For information and assistance if you are dealing with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, call Alzheimers North Carolina at (919) 832-3732 or visit the website at www.alznc.org
