The Alzheimer's Association, Western New York chapter, is challenging all local businesses to start a "Walk to End Alzheimer's" team.

Show your support for the more than 55,000 Western New Yorkers who are currently living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.

People affected by Alzheimer's are surrounding you -- they are your co-workers, clients, neighbors and friends.

Form a walk team today, and you'll be entered into the Memory Cup challenge, which is a competition between all of the corporate and health services teams to see who can raise the most team funds throughout Western New York for Walk to End Alzheimer's.

Walk to End Alzheimer's will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Artpark in Lewiston.

Additional Walks to End Alzheimer's will take place on Sept. 17 in Batavia and Medina, Sept. 24 in Buffalo and Oct. 1 in Chautauqua.

For walk details or to register your team, visit www.AlzWalkWNY.com.

For assistance in organizing your company's Walk to End Alzheimer's team and fundraising ideas, contact the chapter office at 1-800-272-3900.
