On the 15th of September 2012 the Alzheimer’s Association has put together a walk in order to raise awareness as well as raise money to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. The walk is set to take place at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard California and will include music, community booths and other activities.
All proceeds gained by this walk will directly go to the Alzheimer’s Association to help find a cure. With the number of individuals being affected by Alzheimer’s Disease increasing each year, a cure is of course the main goal that is set to be achieved through these walks set by the Alzheimer’s Association.

Through having this walk here in Oxnard the Alzheimer’s Association hopes to raise a total of around $150,000 to further fund research to find a cure as well as fund support groups, care planning, referrals, education, caregiver training and respite grants. Ceremonies to honor and respect those individuals and families who are currently dealing with Alzheimer’s will also take place at the walk.
Come and show support to those who are currently fighting the battle with this disease that has not yet been cured and raise awareness that the numbers of those who are affected by Alzheimer’s Disease are beginning to increase dramatically.
