The St. Louis Walk To End Alzheimer’s last October raised $1,025,000. Our Parkway team raised $2,095 of that total. Thanks to all the donors, volunteers, walkers, and supporters. Because you walk, we are in a new era of treatment. For the first time, we have treatments that can change the course of Alzheimer’s. We help fuel critical progress in dementia science by investing in over 1,000 active best-of-field research projects in 53 countries. We are in a new era of treatment, with FDA – approved drugs that can change disease progression in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.
