Team TGI Walks to End Alzheimer’s
Posted February 2014
On September 22nd, TGI team members walked to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s on the Coney Island Boardwalk, they committed to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support. The TGI team raised $3,365.
The Alzheimer’s Association mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. The donations made will help to advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Walk to End Alzheimer’s also unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more — in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease.
