Martha Patterson, Elder Law Attorney and Founder of the Elder Law Firm Geisler Patterson, based in Irvine, California, announces her support for the 2021 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, benefiting the Orange County Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. The walk takes place on Saturday, October 2, at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine. Patterson has compelling personal reasons for her involvement.
“I am walking for a cure because my mother-in-law died from dementia, and now my husband has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia,” Patterson explains. “I don’t want my children, nieces, and nephews to suffer the same fate. Our team hopes to inspire and empower people of all ages to join us in the fight to raise funds for research, advocacy, and services for families affected by these diseases. Will you join us and support the 2021 Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 2, at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine? We hope to see you there.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association Orange County Chapter, there are still opportunities for businesses and organizations to sponsor both pre-events and the day of the event. They offer creative ways for businesses and organizations to develop a team to participate through individual or group fundraising, with virtual fundraising tools for supporters near and far. They encourage Orange County residents to help them honor the many families impacted in our local community. For more information, visit www.act.alz.org/ocwalks.

About Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s is happening — and you can join us at your local event or Walk From Home in your neighborhood. No matter where you participate, know that your health and safety are our top priorities. All local events will implement safety protocols, including physical distancing, contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations, and more.
Per CDC guidelines around crowded outdoor settings, we ask that all Walk attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or wear a mask when in an overcrowded area. Masks will be available on-site.
We will continue to monitor CDC, state, and local guidelines closely to ensure Walk events adhere to recommendations and are safe for attendees. If you prefer to Walk From Home, you can still engage in many Walk-day experiences through the mobile app.
While there is no fee to register for Walk for Alzheimer’s, all participants are encouraged to raise critical funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support and advance research toward methods of prevention, treatment, and ultimately, a cure.
