Annual Lincoln Trail Walk to End Alzheimer's

Saturday, September 16, 2017

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY, August 15, 2017 – The annual Lincoln Trail Walk to End Alzheimer’s® will be held at Freeman Lake Park on September 16. Registration starts at 9AM, and the Walk begins at 10AM. The annual Walk’s success supports research for a cure and helped over 100,000 families in the Chapter area living with Alzheimer’s.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, is the nation’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. The Lincoln Trail Walk is expected to attract over 400 participants and raise $102,000. Approximately 60 teams are slated to participate in the Lincoln Trail area alone, raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer's is a devastating disease that affects over five million Americans. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Almost two-thirds of those diagnosed are women, and African Americans are twice as likely, and Hispanics two and a half times more likely, to be impacted by the disease than Caucasians. Of the top 10 leading causes of death in America, it is the only one that cannot be slowed, prevented, or cured. Additionally, more than 15 million family and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the U.S. In Kentucky alone, there are more than 70,000 people living with the disease and 271,000 caregivers.

For more information about Walk to End Alzheimer’s, please visit alz.org/walk. Registration is free. For more information about Alzheimer’s disease and the services provided by the Association, please call the 24/7 Helpline at 1-800-272-3900.
