Worldwide there are an estimated 55 million people living with dementia. In the United States alone, more than 6 million individuals have been diagnosed with Alhezimer’s. A terrible disease affecting not only the individuals diagnosed, but also their families and caregivers, Alzheimer’s has no cure.
To help advance research toward methods of prevention, treatment and ultimately a cure, the Alzheimer;s Association hosts more Walk to End Alzheimer’s in more than 600 communities across the country! The world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, this free walk encourages participants of all ages and abilities to walk together and raise money to contribute to the critical funds needed to fight the disease.
Harrisburg plays host to an annual Walk to End Alhezimer’s event. And, this year, Fox Pest Control’s Harrisburg Branch has committed to sponsoring this community-driven event! Scheduled for October 2, 2022, more than 60 teams and 200 participants have already signed up to walk and are in the process of fundraising.
At Fox Pest Control, we have a firm belief that when people come together and put their best efforts forward, anything can be accomplished. Together, we can find a cure for dementia. And, remember, whether you choose to walk, raise money or donate, each contribution moves us closer to ending Alhezimer’s.
We hope to see you at this year’s Walk to End Alhezimer’s on October 2!
