This is Why We Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Posted by Financial Strategies Group in Giving More 18 Aug 2017
Did you know that there are more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease today?
We recently participated in a *survey with our financial planning peers, and learned that:
61% of us have dealt with Alzheimer’s within our own families
81% of us have clients who have been impacted by Alzheimer’s
75% of us have friends and family members impacted by Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s hurts the people we love, and we are dedicated to the fight to end this terrible disease.
In June, we told you Financial Strategies Group is raising funds for the Broward Walk To End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The money we raise will help fight Alzheimer’s disease through vital research, advocacy efforts, and essential support programs and services in our community. Your donations play an important role in improving the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s, their families, and caregivers.
To date, we have raised $6,140. Our goal is to raise $20,000 before October 21, 2017.
In addition to our own efforts, we are also members of Integrated Financial Group’s national Alzheimer’s Team, and have collectively pledged to reach a group-wide goal of $100,000. We are proud members of Integrated Financial Group’s consortium of independent financial planners headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
