Join Amoeba and Walk To Fight Alzheimer's October 20th in LA
Walk4ALZ in LA 10/20
Amoeba is proud to participate in Walk4ALZ, a fundraising walk to support Alzheimer's Los Angeles, on Sunday, October 20th at Los Angeles State Historic Park in downtown LA. Many of us at Amoeba have been affected by Alzheimer's in some way, whether it is through a family member, friend or loved one. In Los Angeles alone there are over 250,000 people living with Alzheimer’s. Californians overall provide 1.8 billion hours of unpaid care to those suffering from Alzheimer's each year. Unless something is done, Alzheimer’s will not only devastate millions of people, it will also bankrupt our healthcare system. That is why we've put together a team to participate in the walk and raise critical funds for local programs helping tens of thousands of families in Los Angeles facing an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
Whether you’re living with dementia, caring for someone with dementia, lost someone to Alzheimer’s, or simply want to make a difference in our community please join the Amoeba team! You can walk with us on October 20th at the walk4ALZ, walk virtually or donate online.
The walk itself is a gentle 1-mile walk open to all ages and abilities. Canine friends on leashes are welcome too! Not only will you be making a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's, you can also connect with other families facing Alzheimer’s and find resources!
Amoeba will also be on site at the walk4ALZ on October 20th! Stop by our booth and spin the prize wheel, listen to awesome tunes from DJ Monalisa, get a caricature by Rene, an airbrush tattoo from We Adorn You LA, and fuel up with some yummy tacos by Ricardo.
Additionally, Walk4ALZ will have games, contests, a health & wellness resource village, and prizes for Top Fundraiser, Top Youth Fundraiser, and Top Fundraising Team.
Join the Amoeba team and we'll see you on October 20th!
