There are 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, and the disease impacts millions more. There are family and friends who grieve the slow deterioration of the people they once knew. There are the caregivers whose own health often suffers for the stress from their role. And there are the beneficiaries and charities whose intended gifts are often ripped away to pay for medical care. Day after day, Alzheimer's personally affects our financial advisors, branch office administrators, associates, clients and communities.
We walk to raise awareness not only of the devastation of the disease but also of the path forward to one day see its eradication. Awareness is the step we take with Walk Across America, but it's just one way we at Edward Jones have joined the fight to end Alzheimer's. We also are involved in supporting research and raising funds.
