Temperatures dipped to 12 below zero early Tuesday morning, yet 180 people gathered in the NYS Legislative Office Building’s Well, to support what was easily our biggest Rally to End Alzheimer’s! More than fifty advocates from our Chapter area – from dedicated caregivers to health care students – passionately shared with elected officials that Alzheimer’s disease services sorely need the proposed increase in funding of $25 million. We received great media response from local and state government reporters, which carried our message even further.
We thank everyone who took an active role in being there, recruiting others to attend, and speaking out on behalf of what we know needs to happen on the state level. We cannot cause change without your voice. Let’s work together to end Alzheimer’s suffering. To get involved, call us at 800-272-3900.
