The Southwest Georgia Alzheimer TMs Association went to downtown today asking people to take action. Wednesday was actually Alzheimer TMs Action Day, but they're asking people register for the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer TMs.
The walk is on October 15 in downtown Albany.
By the year 2050, the stats say one in four people over the age of 65 will develop Alzheimer TMs disease, so we feel like it's our time. It's time for people to realize that Alzheimer TMs is a disease; it's not about somebody being crazy or not being as smart as someone else. It's really a disease and we need to find out what TMs causing it and we need to get a cure for it, said Dave Phillips, Director of the Southwest Georgia Alzheimer TMs Association
Last year the walk raised nearly $90,000 for Alzheimer TMs research. This year they're aiming for $125,000.
