Alzheimer's impacts too many Rotarians and their families. There are currently nearly 6 million Americans living with the disease with nearly 16 million caregivers. As the number of older Americans grows rapidly, so too will the number of new and existing cases of Alzheimer's. Rotary Clubs will be participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, the world's largest Alzheimer's fundraiser, as a National Walk Team, led by the Alzheimer's Dementia Rotarian Action Group (ADRAG). 
Jeff Kaplan from the Alzheimer's Association Home Office and member of our Deerfield club has started a District 6440 team for the North Shore Walk, taking place in Glenview on Sat, September 14. We would love to have representation from our club. Please consider making a contribution, and if you can’t make it that day, register as a virtual walker.
