San Diego County Credit Union sponsors Walk4ALZ, San Diego’s Premier Alzheimer’s Walk

SDCCU will join thousands in Balboa Park and the Oceanside Pier to help raise awareness and research funding

10/14/2016 12:00 a.m.

SDCCU is a proud sponsor of the 2016 Walk4ALZ, organized by Alzheimer’s San Diego, taking place in 2 locations on consecutive dates: Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 8 a.m. in Balboa Park and Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 4 p.m. at the Oceanside Pier.

“SDCCU is honored to sponsor Walk4ALZ. We encourage the entire community to rally to the cause of supporting Alzheimer’s San Diego by funding more research and awareness that’s needed to help find a cure for all who are touched by this disease,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. Over 5.3 million Americans living today have developed Alzheimer’s.
 
All members of the community are welcome and invited to join in this year’s walk, which will kick off with registration at 6:30 a.m. on October 15 in Balboa Park. The walk will commence at 8 a.m. over a 2.75 mile course. The second weekend of the Walk4ALZ event will kick off with registration at 2:30 p.m. on October 22 at the Oceanside Pier. The walk will commence at 4 p.m. over a 2 mile course. Festivities at both events include live music, performers, face painting and craft areas.
 
The National Institutes of Health describes Alzheimer’s disease as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and ultimately the ability to carry out the even the simplest of tasks. Alzheimer’s San Diego estimates there are over 60,000 San Diegans living with the disease today, contributing to the third leading cause of death and leaving over 150,000 San Diegans caring for a loved one afflicted with the disease. One-hundred percent of donations raised as part of the Walk4ALZ event will stay in San Diego.
