With rates in Colorado projected to surge 30 percent by 2025, the impact of Alzheimer's disease is increasing rapidly.
On Saturday, August 25th, 2018, hundreds are expected to take part in the Yampa Valley Walk to End Alzheimer's at Casey's Pond in Steamboat Springs.
The event raises money to support the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, including its research and programs for people living with Alzheimer's.
It's also a chance to raise awareness about a disease that is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Currently, 71,000 Coloradoans are living with Alzheimer's — a number projected to grow to 92,000 over the next seven years. Routt County ranks 24th out of 60 counties for Alzheimer's as a cause of death.

The residents and team members of Casey's Pond are proud to take part in this event - making a difference in a cause that's very close to our hearts.
