The team raised almost $500 last year. They’re hoping to double that amount this year.
“We are walking to help reclaim the future for millions,” Dr. Rowe said. “By participating in the 2013 Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, we are committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.”
The Caregiving Lab team has set a goal of raising $1,000. The money raised will go towards research to help treat and prevent Alzheimer’s, and provide programs to improve the lives of millions of people affected by the disease.
Alzheimer’s Association reports that more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
