Florham Park, NJ, September 4, 2018 – The Alzheimer’s Association® is inviting all Monmouth and Ocean County residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Walk will take place on Saturday, October 20th at Bradley Beach Boardwalk at 5th & Ocean Avenues, Bradley Beach, NJ.

Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants can complete up to a two mile walk and learn about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services from the Alzheimer’s Association. Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

“As volunteers and this year’s Event Co-Chairs, we are joining participants of all ages in the fight against the disease at Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic. The disease is relentless; but here in New Jersey, so are we.”, says Diane Carnellie and Richard Christensen.

More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the only disease among the top 10 causes that cannot be cured, prevented or even slowed. Additionally, more than 16 million family and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the U.S. In New Jersey alone, there are more than 180,000 people living with the disease and 453,000 caregivers.

Register your team today. Sign up as a Team Captain, or register to walk as an individual. For those unable to join on event day, there are ways to participate and volunteer without even walking. Learn more at alz.org/njwalk, or contact us at: 973-437-3931.
