Thousands of Houston residents united in a movement to reclaim the future for millions at the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In 2010 the Houston walk raised $268,020, contributing to more than $42.2 million raised by participants nationwide for care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer’s.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants were able to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment, and support programs and services. Each walker joined in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
