To support those affected by Alzheimer’s and to raise funds and awareness to fight this disease, a team from SAGE Eldercare will participate in its fifth Alzheimer’s Association Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s on October 1 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.
Last year, Team SAGE raised more than $5,000 for the walk. “With as many as 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and 10 million baby boomers aging and increasing their risk for developing this fatal disease, now is the time to end this epidemic. As an advocate and provider of programs and services for individuals with Alzheimer’s, SAGE Eldercare is proud to support and participate in this event,” said SAGE Spend-A-Day Director Deanna Butters, who leads Team SAGE.
The Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s is Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s largest fundraising event, and 100 percent of the donations support New Jersey families and individuals. Alzheimer’s New Jersey has been providing care and support for New Jersey families impacted by Alzheimer’s since 1985 and is dedicated to research for a cure.
The Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 1 begins with registration at 9 am and the walk at 10 am at Liberty State Park, 1 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City, NJ. To join Team SAGE, or to make a donation, please visit: http://bit.ly/29OW5VW.
