Cause for celebration
MEDINA/CUYAHOGA FALLS — The Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Walk® will take place at the Square in Medina Sept. 30 at noon and at Blossom Music Center Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. The annual Memory Walk, nationally presented by Genworth Financial, is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs. Held annually in hundreds of communities across the country, this event calls on volunteers of all ages, including those living with the disease, families, caregivers and corporate and community leaders, to join the fight against Alzheimer’s. In 2007, the association estimates there are now more than 5 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States.
