Alzheimer’s is becoming an increasingly common cause of death for the aging population in the United States. Over 5 million individuals are currently living with the disease, and it is expected to affect 16 million Americans by 2050. Recognizing the devastation that Alzheimer’s causes on a daily basis, Gilfix & La Poll Associates LLP has decided to join the fight against the progressive brain disease.
Gilfix & La Poll is a proud sponsor of the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Silicon Valley, California. Members of the law firm have also formed a team to participate in the walk. The event is held annually nationwide in an effort to create awareness about Alzheimer’s, as well as to raise funds for the advancement of research and the care of those living with the disease.
Gilfix & La Poll is inviting families and members of the community to join them for the walk on Saturday, October 14, 2017 in Arena Green, N. Autumn St., San Jose, California. Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome. As a united force, there is hope for finding a possible cure for the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
Those who are unable to join the walk are encouraged to make a $35 donation to the Gilfix & La Poll fundraising campaign. Every contribution helps the care, prevention and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
