Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease! When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission, and your participation in the event helps to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community.
Alzheimer’s disease is an epidemic! It’s the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. In 2017, Alzheimer's will cost the United States $259 billion. This number is expected to rise to over $1 trillion by 2050.
Please join Home Care Assistance as we support the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s on October 7th. Poppington’s Popcorn will be donating a very generous portion of the proceeds of every bag of popcorn sold (special Alzheimer’s bags) during the month of August to the Alzheimer’s Association.
