Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that severely diminishes a person's memory, ability to reason and, ultimately, the ability to function. Every 70 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer’s. By mid-century, someone will develop the disease every 33 seconds. The event’s proceeds will help the Chapter serve the more than 250,000 people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s that live in the five boroughs of New York City, their family members and caregivers in addition to providing vital funds for research.
The Junior Committee of the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter is dedicated to raising awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to a generation who may not be as familiar with the statistics and devastating effects of the disease. This is accomplished through events, education and support to further the efforts of the New York City Chapter. Committee members include young professional in their 20s and 30s.
