November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month and for the past 8 years, we have kicked it off with a 5k walk/run to raise awareness and support for Alzheimer’s in our community. The 2019 Turkey Trot for a Cure is planned for Saturday November 2nd at the Morehead Conference Center. Last year’s event was a great success with more than 400 walkers/runners and over $4000.00 in donations for our Foundation’s Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care Fund. Our race is for everyone from the beginner to the most advanced, we welcome all Trotters and teams to join us for a fun filled morning of food, fun, & fellowship as we work towards a goal of eliminating Alzheimer disease. The race course will be in beautiful downtown Morehead. The morning will include informational sessions on Alzheimer’s & Dementia, a free health fair, a kids room, chicken noodle soup & hot chocolate after the race. While we have a fun morning planned, more importantly, we need to be aware of the extent Alzheimer’s disease has on America and continue to work together to find a cure. The annual Alzheimer’s Association Facts & Figures for 2019 are astounding. Over 5.5 million people in the US have Alzheimer’s disease; including 73,000 Kentuckians. The disease affects 1 in 9 older adults and it is the 6th leading cause of death in the US today for which there is no cure; 50% of those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease never receive the diagnosis. On another note, there are as many as 16 million unpaid caregivers! Many reside in Morehead & Rowan County. We look forward to seeing you!
