There has never been a more critical time to support the Alzheimer’s Association. Today, 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including an estimated 200,000 under the age of 65. This number is projected to jump to 16 million by 2050 unless we can find a cure or effective way to slow down the progression. You are invited to help alter the trajectory of this disease by attending an upcoming Reason to Hope event.
Reason to Hope is a powerful one-hour fundraising luncheon and program on Alzheimer's disease. Guests will learn more about our efforts to provide care and support to the many families in need in Illinois, as well as help advance the important field of Alzheimer’s research. You will hear an impactful first-hand account from someone living with the disease or caregiver that will reflect the positive impact our programs have on families and the Illinois healthcare community.
While the event is free, at the program’s conclusion, guests are given the opportunity to reinforce their commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association by making a contribution. The funds raised from Reason to Hope help us provide care and support to more than 210,000 people living with Alzheimer’s in Illinois and the estimated 589,000 caregivers.
