2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s Association

Cheerleaders from Stamford High School and Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk

A beautiful early fall day marked the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s. More than 1,500 walkers sported the signature purple, laced up their sneakers and hit the road for a good cause, raising nearly $250,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association, CT chapter. The three-mile walk is an annual event at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, and is one of six walks that take place throughout Connecticut. Cheerleaders from Stamford High School and Brien McMahon High School got the crowd excited; and
a host of fun activities, ranging from massages to face painting kicked off the day. An outpouring of local support from more than twenty sponsors helped to make the day possible.

By 2050 16 million people are expected to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, the only major disease with a 100 percent mortality rate. All proceeds from the walk benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, CT chapter, whose mission is to fund research, increase awareness, and provide care and support to victims and their families. alz.org/ct
