Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Edwards Group Team

Join Benefits Coordinator, Melissa Coulter, on the Edwards Group team at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s September 24, 2016 at Springfield’s South Wind Park.

As a part of the team at Edwards Group, we help people everyday who have loved ones facing the challenges presented by Alzheimer’s or one of the other 70 forms of dementia. We are all too familiar with this disease and the stress it places on caregivers, family members and loved ones.

Did you know:

  • more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s?
  • 1 in 3 seniors die from Alzheimer’s or another related dementia?
  • Alzheimer’s kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined?

I have experienced this disease in my own family, and others on our Edwards Group team have been affected by this terrible disease. It is a matter dear to our hearts.

This year I chose to volunteer on the Alzheimer’s Association WALK committee to help bring greater awareness to the community. The Alzheimer’s Walk is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Alzheimer’s Association – a group that works tirelessly to eradicate the disease, help those who are touched by it, and increase brain health.

I’m sharing this with you because we’d like to welcome you to join our team at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 24, 2016, at Springfield’s South Wind Park.

We walk to honor our own family members, but also those clients who currently have a loved one facing this very issue, or are struggling with some form of dementia themselves. We also walk with hope for the future — that our children and grandchildren will not be affected by this debilitating and deadly disease.
