This Year, Alzheimer's Walk is Held "Everywhere," Chairman Beau Rusk Explains on KIOS
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering, but we are still walking — and calling on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.
This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere — on every sidewalk, track and trail. On event day, we invite you to participate in small, safe teams while others in your community do the same.
Beau Rusk is the Chairman of the Nebraska Walk to End Alzheimer’s and he joined Mike Hogan on KIOS to discuss this pandemic induced method of continuing to raise money for treatment and ultimately a cure.
While there is no fee to register for Walk, all participants are encouraged to raise funds that will advance the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association by enabling critical care and support services and advancing research toward methods of prevention, treatment and, ultimately, a cure.
