Butler, Warren and Clinton Counties Walk To End Alzheimer’s

Wetherington Golf & Country Club in West Chester
It will be a tough act to follow, but organizers are confident that the upcoming Butler, Warren & Clinton Counties Walk to End Alzheimer’s can duplicate and even surpass last year’s record fundraising effort.

The 2014 Butler, Warren & Clinton Counties Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held at the Wetherington Golf & Country Club in West Chester on Saturday, Sept. 13. Registration begins at 9 a.m.; the Walk begins at 10 a.m.  You can also pre-register for the Walk online at www.alz.org/cincinnati.

Last year, more than 1,000 people participated in the Walk at Wetherington, raising a record $125,000 for Chapter programs and services in Butler, Warren and Clinton counties.

Serving as the primary national fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is an annual event that brings the community together to remember and support those affected by Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only one in the top 10 without an effective treatment or prevention. Today, more than 5 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s, a figure that is expected to nearly triple within the next 30 years.

“Alzheimer’s disease touches thousands of people in Butler, Warren and Clinton counties. The Walk is a way for the community to come together in support of these families and the services and programs we provide,” said Krista Powers, Development director with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. “The Walk shows that small steps can go a long way in fighting Alzheimer’s disease.”

The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati serves 27 counties in Southwest Ohio, Southeastern Indiana and Northern Kentucky where an estimated 50,000 people have Alzheimer’s disease. Last year, more than 6,000 people participated in the Chapter’s five area Walks, raising a record $650,000 to support the Chapter’s local programs and services and to fund national Alzheimer’s research.

“We are asking the residents of Butler, Warren and Clinton Counties to come out to help us break last year’s attendance record,” says Special Events Coordinator Jeff Dehner. “This Walk, the second largest in the Tri-state, is an important part of our Chapter’s mission to expand awareness and outreach to residents in the northern portion of our service area.”

The B105.1FM morning team of Big Dave, Chelsie and Statt will serve as emcees for the event. Parking will be in the Meijer parking lot on Tylersville Road with shuttles running from the store lot to Wetherington.

B105.1 FM is presenting sponsor for this year’s Walk. Other sponsors include, the AK Steel Foundation, the Cincinnati Reds, The Alois Alzheimer Center, Emery, Hightowers Petroleum Co., Lakota Commercial Realty and Mt. Pleasant Retirement Village.

For more information on the Walk, contact Mr. Dehner at (513) 721-4284, or  jdehner@alz.org. You can also register on-line by visiting the chapter web site at www.alz.org/cincinnati.

West Chester OH 5K benefitting Veterans - September 2014

5K run/walk that Orion International is hosting this Fall in West Chester to benefit wounded Veterans as well as the children of Veterans killed in combat.

Orion has launched a national campaign called the "Low to High Challenge" that is goaled at raising more than $100,000 in 2014 that will be donated entirely to charities supporting Veterans who have been wounded & burned in combat, as well as the children of Veterans killed in combat.  The charities are Operation Military Embrace, Children of Fallen Patriots, and Warrior Hike.  Many of you may have lost loved ones who have given their lives for our Nation, or know others who have been wounded in service to the U.S.  I lost some great friends in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and also know several other Veterans who were wounded and will now spend the rest of their lives trying to overcome these injuries.

As part of our fundraising for this national campaign, we're hosting a 5K run/walk in West Chester on 9/6/14, and registration is now open.

Here is the link to this event: www.veteranlowtohighchallenge.com/5k/cincinnati

All of the proceeds from this 5K run/walk are directly benefitting the non-profit charities I mentioned above, and all donations - both dollars or even goods/services - are tax deductible.

Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Walk to End Alzheimer's

Sawyer Point
The statistics are frightening…an estimated 5 million Americans currently affected…the sixth leading cause of death…one in eight baby boomers to be stricken with the disease. The latest figures regarding Alzheimer’s disease and its impact on the United States bring a heightened sense of urgency to do something about a growing epidemic.

But for many who participate in the annual Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, like Missy Ross of Landen, Ohio, the numbers are overshadowed by more personal reasons to be involved in the event.

“My grandmother, Betty, died with Alzheimer’s four years ago,” said Ms. Ross. “It is sometimes difficult to feel that you can make a difference with an issue as large as Alzheimer’s but with the Walks you feel like every dollar can help. You feel like you are making a difference.”

The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati is hoping for thousands of supporters to participate in the 2014 Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Oct. 4 at Sawyer Point in Cincinnati. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk will start at 10 a.m. The 3.5 mile walk route will include Newport on the Levee and the Purple People Bridge.

Serving as the primary national fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an annual event that brings the community together to remember and support those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Proceeds from the walks directly benefit the local programs and services of the Alzheimer’s Association as well as support of Alzheimer’s research efforts.

Last year, an estimated 6,000 walkers participated in the Greater Cincinnati Chapter’s five regional Walk events, raising a record total of $650,000.

B105.1 FM’s Jason Statt and Jesse Tack will join Bob Herzog of WKRC-TV Local 12 as emcees of the event.

For more information, or to register online, visit: www.alz.org/cincinnati or call (800) 272-3900.

Presenting sponsor of the event is The Kenwood by Senior Star. Other major corporate sponsors include OJM Group, the Cincinnati Reds, AIM/MRO, Emery, Kroger, Baird, Lamar, Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Johnson Investment, Our Family Home and Life Enriching Communities.

2014 Congenital Heart Walk of Greater Cincinnati

Eden Park in Cincinnati, OH
On Saturday, October 11, 2014, The Children’s Heart Foundation and Adult Congenital Heart Foundation (ACHA) will sponsor the 5th annual Congenital Heart Walk at Eden Park in Cincinnati, OH. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m.

CHD is the #1 birth defect in the world, impacting millions of families each year. This family-friendly 1 mile walk and rally raises funds which will be split between The Children’s Heart Foundation and ACHA. Congenital Heart Walk supporters can sign up ahead of time to walk individually or in teams by registering at www.congenitalheartwalk.org or by calling (215) 856-4373.

This event is also sponsored by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Heart Institute, Mended Little Hearts, and Bodyworks of Cincinnati.

Approximately 40,000 babies are born with a congenital heart defect every year in the United States alone. These conditions often result in multiple surgical procedures, life-long disabilities, and all too often, death.
