Why? 35 million people worldwide are affected by dementia. Maybe you know a few of those people. United together, we can accomplish more in the fight against dementia.
When? The whole month of September is World Alzheimer's Month, but on September 21, the Alzheimer's Association is suggesting that you wear purple and change your facebook icon to the purple End Alzheimer's button.
In conjunction with World Alzheimer's month, the Alzheimer's Association is also holding a Walk to End Alzheimer's. Their goal is to have 40,000 teams walking, and so far they have around 30,000. These local walks throughout the nation will be held on September 29, 2012. For more information, check with your local Association.
