We’re proud to print for the Silicon Valley organization, which held one of the largest walks in the nation in 2020 and 2021. In fact, out of the 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, 35,314 call Santa Clara County home! No wonder so many people in our community come together to support this worthy cause.
What we often don’t see or discuss are the 11 million people nationwide that are serving as caregivers to family members and friends that live with dementia. In California, this unpaid caregiving adds up to 881,000 hours of valued at close to 19-million dollars.
Last year the Silicon Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s raised a record-breaking $1,658,000 to help support these unpaid caregivers and patients.! This year we hope you can join in and help us raise even more. The walk will be held at the Excite Ballpark in San Jose on October 15. The Ceremony starts at 9:00 am, which is followed by the walk at 9:30 am.
