Mayor Stephen Galliher met with members of The Alzheimer's Association Greater Missouri Chapter on Thursday, August 27 to announce their Sedalia Walk to End Alzheimer's event to be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

More than 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's, a common form of dementia. While a majority of people affected by this disease are 65 or older, Alzheimer's is not a normal ...part of aging. Up to 5% of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's experienced symptoms while still in their 40s and 50s. This information and much more may be found at www.alz.org.
