On October 26, the Rotary Club of the Livermore Valley scored big on behalf of the fight against Alzheimer’s. Twelve volunteers raised over $9,700, landing them in a top spot among the East Bay’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s teams.

“It seems that just about everyone has a personal story to relate about how Alzheimer’s has impacted their family,” said team captain Eduardo Salaz. “I’m very proud of our efforts, we were ranked 9 out of the top 10 teams in the East Bay. That was a great showing for a relatively small team.”

Funds can continue to be counted towards this event until December 31. Between the years 2000 and 2017 the number of deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s has increased 145%, and it’s now the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. To donate, visit 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's - East Bay Area.
