If you or someone you know – a family member, a friend, a friend of a friend – have ever been touched by Alzheimer’s Disease, I ask that you please consider supporting the Medina County walk! You can do so by purchasing a sign of support, or by participating yourself!

Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and the only one in the top 10 without a cure, treatment, or prevention. We are working to learn more every day on the path to ending Alzheimer’s. Your support will help us advance our research and to continue to provide free programs and services to those affected by memory loss and their caregivers in the Medina County community.

I am personally inviting you to join me for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, September 21st at the Medina Community Recreation Center. This year, we have a lot to celebrate both in the local as well as the global Alzheimer’s community, and the walk will highlight the amazing work our local volunteers do to raise awareness and to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s and other related dementia diseases.

You can visit act.alz.org/medinacounty for more information and to register!

One of my major goals for this year’s Walk is for participants to know just how supported they are by the local community: our leaders, our business owners, our neighbors, and our friends. I dream of a pathway to the walk route lined with signs of support for participants and their loved ones. As a result, we’ve added a Sign of Support day of marketing opportunity for our community partners. As a Sign of Support sponsor, our partners will have a garden sign with their logo on it that will line the walk for our participants as a visible reminder that they are not alone. This is the perfect opportunity to highlight your business, or to provide words of encouragement to caregivers and family members who have lost their loved ones to this disease.

If you would like to get involved in this year’s walk as a community partner, volunteer, or sponsor, please let me know. I am happy to answer any questions you may have or to help guide you through the process.

Thank you for your continued support, and I hope to see you at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s!
