Jack Waldroup joins the Alzheimer’s Association as the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Event Chair for the Eastern Shore walk. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs.
“The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions,” Waldroup said. “The ALZ Association is making great strides in answering those questions. Being able to help those who need those answers is why I do this. With this being our third year on the Eastern Shore, I hope that ‘Third Times the Charm’ and we are the highest raising walk for the organization”.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s calls on participants to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions. In addition to the two-mile walk, participants learn about Alzheimer’s disease and how to get involved with this critical cause, from advocacy opportunities to support programs and services to clinical studies.
Waldroup became involved in the Walk To End Alzheimer’s on the Eastern Shore since its inception three years ago.
“I have served in all aspects of the walk, so it is a great honor to be this year’s Walk Chairman,” he said. “I have big shoes to fill since our first two walks were extremely successful. I hope that we as a community can join together even more than ever and help raise awareness for such a life changing disease.”
Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Sept. 10 at the Fairhope Pier and South Beach Park in Fairhope. Nearly 500 people from the Baldwin County are expected at this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Start or join a team today here.
