Registration open for ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’events

first_imgCincinnati, Oh. — Registration is now open for the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide including 12 locations in Indiana, calling on more than 500,000 annual participants of all ages and abilities to help reclaim the future for millions.More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only disease among the top 10 causes that cannot be cured, prevented or even slowed. Additionally, more than 16 million friends and family members provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the U.S. In Indiana alone, there are more than 110,000 people living with the disease and 338,000 caregivers.“Because of support from individuals and communities for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the Greater Indiana Chapter was able to provide more than 13,000 care and support services last year for Hoosiers living with the disease and their caregivers,” said Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter Executive Natalie Sutton. “In addition, we are working toward advancing public policy and Alzheimer’s and dementia research. Thanks to generous supporters at the 12 Indiana walks, we are able to further the Association’s mission.”Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s participants will complete a walk (lengths vary based on event location) and learn about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services from the Alzheimer’s Association. Walk participants also honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony.Event Dates and LocationsSaturday, August 25: Liberty Park – Batesville, IndianaSunday, September 9: Central Park – Mishawaka, Ind.Sunday, September 16: City Hall Plaza – Bloomington, Ind.Sunday, September 16: Fairbanks Park Amphitheater – Terre Haute, Ind.Saturday, September 22: Jackson Morrow Park – Kokomo, Ind.Sunday, September 23: Hoosier Park Racing & Casino – Anderson, Ind.Sunday, September 23: Lake County Fairgrounds – Crown Point, Ind.Saturday, September 29: Subaru of Indiana Automotive – Lafayette, Ind.Saturday, September 29: Earlham College – Richmond, Ind.Sunday, September 30: Mill Race Center – Columbus, Ind.Saturday, October 6: Parkview Field – Fort Wayne, Ind.Saturday, October 6: Bankers Life Fieldhouse – Indianapolis, Ind.Saturday, October 6: Washington Park – Michigan City, Ind.last_img read more

Still looking to get that baggy green, says Adam Zampa

first_imgMELBOURNE: Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa has expressed his desire to play Test cricket for his country and referred to it as his ultimate goal.Zampa has somewhat become a white-ball specialist for Australia in recent years and so far has featured in 55 ODIs and 30 T20Is but is yet to make his debut in red-ball cricket. “For me playing Test cricket is still the ultimate goal. Over the last few years it’s probably really easy for people to pinpoint me as a while-ball bowler,” Zampa was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz. “I’ve played most of the white-ball games for Australia over the last few years so it’s really limited my first-class opportunities, so I really want to change people’s perceptions.” Zampa’s first-class record, however, doesn’t paint a good picture as far as him getting picked for the longest format is concerned. Since 2012, he has played just 38 first-class matches and picked 105 wickets. Moreover, in the last three seasons, he has featured in just three Sheffield Shield games and scalped five wickets. “I know my first-class record doesn’t really speak for itself but over the last three years when I haven’t really been playing first-class cricket, I’ve really improved as a bowler so I’m looking to still get that baggy green,” the 28-year-old said.
