Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the North Carolina and an 161% increase in deaths since 2000. There are approximately 5 million Americans living with the disease and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. Between 2000 and 2018, deaths from Alzheimer’s has increased 146%. In terms of caregiving, there are more than 16 million caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the United States. The caregivers provide $18.6 billion hours of unpaid care, a contribution to the nation valued at more than $244 billion. In 2020, Alzheimer’s disease will cost the United States $305 billion. This number is projected to rise to more than $1.1 trillion in 2050.
The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to ending Alzheimer’s. This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere – on sidewalk, track and trail. Raleigh, NC will walk on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Your health and safety are our top priorities. We won’t have a large in-person gathering – instead, we invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
Every dollar you donate will help the Alzheimer’s Association provide care and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s. Please consider supporting Cisco’s efforts with a donation.
Thank you for your support!
