SMART Brain Aging is proud to participate for the third year in a row in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
Each year, the walk takes place in over 600 nationwide communities. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event dedicated to raising Alzheimer’s awareness and funds. The funds raised go to the care and support of those with Alzheimer’s and for further research on Alzheimer’s.
