Presbyterian Village North Forms Team for Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk|
DALLAS, Texas – Presbyterian Village North (PVN) is proud to sponsor the 2006 Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk. The Memory Walk is the national signature event of the Alzheimer's Association and it is the nation's number one fundraising event for Alzheimer's education, care and support services.
An estimated 4.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, and by the year 2050, the number of individuals with Alzheimer's could range from 11.3 to 16 million Americans.
You can support the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association by joining TEAM PVN at this year's Memory Walk as we raise funds and awareness about the disease.
