Alzheimer’s is the 4th leading cause of death in L.A. County
Two-thirds of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s are women
African Americans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
Hispanics & Asia Pacific Islanders are each 1.5 times more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
Today, there is an Alzheimer’s diagnosis every 67 seconds – by 2050, it will be every 33 seconds
These are just some of the statistics we face, but with your help, the funds raised through walk4ALZ® will help provide those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their families the information, support, and resources they need. Alzheimer’s Los Angeles provides free programs and services, including Care Counseling, early-stage programs, art and music activities, a helpline, support groups, community and caregiver education, advocacy, and local research.
