The Women's Conference 2010
Join Maria Shriver's March on Alzheimer's & Candlelight Vigil
Sunday, October 24, 2010 3PM - 7PM
Long Beach, CA

“Alzheimer's is a mind-blowing disease that disproportionately impacts women – both as victims and caretakers of loved one's suffering from it. With more than 5 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer's in this country and a new diagnosis every 70 seconds, I believe it's time to pick up the pace and start marching to defeat this devastating disease. We are inviting both women and men of all ages to join us in Long Beach." -- Maria Shriver

Maria Shriver has been a long-time advocate for families like hers who are struggling with Alzheimer's. The march will bring together thousands of families, friends, caregivers, concerned community members and conference attendees to raise funds and awareness to fight the disease.

The March will benefit the Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. A minimum donation of $25 is required to sign-up for the march and all participants are encouraged to raise additional funds to support the organization's work.
