We have the honor of being a sponsor for the Flagler Walk to End Alzheimer’s, scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Veterans Park in Flagler Beach. This will be our 5th year of walking together as a team. This fight is very near and dear to our family and friends as my mom, Sweet Sue ended her 8 year journey with Alzheimer’s November 14th 2014. This year we walk in her memory and to help fund research for this devastating disease.
Alzheimer’s disease can not be stopped or slowed, neither can we. It is estimated that 5.1 million individuals may have Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is officially listed as the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s, and provide programs and support to improve the lives of millions of affected Americans. We are asking our friends and colleagues to join us in this incredible opportunity to raise awareness and support for our community.
PLEASE WALK WITH US. Register on-line at www.alz.org and select FIND A WALK. Next select Flagler Beach, FL and then Sweet Sue’s Strollers
Very truly yours,
Jeffrey D. Parks MD
