November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness month and for the past 11 years, we have kicked it off with a 5k walk/run to raise awareness and support for Alzheimer's in our community.
The last couple years have been trying but one thing has not changed, our caregivers still need support and we need to continue to raise awareness of this terrible memory robbing disease. The annual Alzheimer's Association Facts & Figures for 2022 are astounding. Over 6 million people in the US have Alzheimer's disease; including 75,000 Kentuckians. The disease affects 1 in 3 older adults and it is the 6th leading cause of death in the US today for which there is no cure; about half of those who suffer from Alzheimer's disease never receive the diagnosis. On another note, there are millions of unpaid caregivers! Many reside in Morehead & Rowan County. We hope we can count on you to register to participate in person or on your own, and help raise funds and awareness.
We hope you can join us for a fun morning including a health fair, refreshments and door prizes!!
This year's race packets will include a commemorative shirt and race bib. We will host a packet pick up event prior to the race. It is imperative that you register early to ensure you get a shirt.
