Alzheimer's

MANSFIELD -- Hundreds of area residents from Richland, Ashland, Crawford and Knox counties will join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease at the 2019 North Central Ohio Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

The event is on Saturday, Sept. 14. Registration is at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. The event takes place at the Health Sciences Building on the OSU-Mansfield/NC State Campus, 2421 Kenwood Circle, in Mansfield.

In 2018, the North Central Ohio Walk raised close to $65,000 for Alzheimer’s care, support and research efforts. 

Currently, 32,000 individuals in Northwest Ohio live with the disease. The North Central Ohio Walk to End Alzheimer’s rallies families impacted by dementia, other caregivers, and also people living with dementia, in a movement to support one another through the journey – and to find a cure. 

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Participants can learn more about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services.

Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.
