This fall, Vermonters from across the state will join the fight against Alzheimer’s at the 2013 Vermont Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Vermont Walk at Shelburne Museum on Sept. 22 is one of five across the state that will help the Alzheimer’s Association’s Vermont Chapter, raise awareness and fund critical care, support services, and research efforts.
“There has never been a greater need for the citizens of Vermont to join in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease,” said Martha Richardson, the Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association, Vermont Chapter. “Their support… helps our movement gain momentum and empowers our community to raise funds and awareness for the nearly 12,000 Vermonters currently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.”
The Vermont Walk will cover approximately two miles of Shelburne Museum’s picturesque grounds. Registration is at 9:30 am, and the walk will begin at 10:30 am. Participants will enjoy a complimentary day at the beautiful Shelburne Museum, a healthy breakfast, entertainment, educational opportunities, and our 2013 Promise Garden—a new mission-focused element sponsored by the Arbors at Shelburne Bay.
