Sioux Falls 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Coming Up
Sioux Falls 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer’s is Saturday, Sept. 15th. Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time. It is the cause of a majority of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty with short-term memory.
As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation (including easily getting lost), mood swings, loss of motivation, not managing self care, and behavioural issues. As a person's condition declines, they often withdraw from family and society.
The Sioux Falls Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease. Together, we can end Alzheimer's.
