Dementia Talk #3: Walks

Map of Charity Walks and Races 2015

Editor’s note: “As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good,” said poet Maya Angelou, an eloquent supporter of research to end Alzheimer’s and related dementias. If you’re in the U.S. this fall, why not step out in one of the Alzheimer’s Association’s famous Walks to End Alzheimer’s, or a related event aimed at relief for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease)? Click on the map below to register for a walk or race near you. As Angelou pointed out, African-Americans are twice as likely to develop dementia. In honor of all my friends living with this condition, come step on out. — MAB
