The Alzheimer’s Association invites the Santa Barbara County community to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the 2015 Santa Barbara Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, presented by Pacific Neuroscience Medical Group, will take place Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It is an experience for 450 participants in Santa Barbara critical cause, from advocacy opportunities and clinical studies enrollment to support programs and services.

Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. 

As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate, increasing well beyond today’s more than 5 million Americans, including over 9,000 in Santa Barbara County, to as many as 16 million by 2050.

To start or join a team today, visit the Alzheimer’s Association alz.org/walk.

To learn more about disease and available resources, call the toll-free Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.

— Trinity Schwartz is the development manager for the Central Coast Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
