Alzheimer’s Association 2022 Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Gainesville

Meldon Law will join the Alzheimer’s Association Central and North Florida Chapter as the 2022 Walk to End Alzheimer’s presenting sponsor in Gainesville.

“My wife, Patricia and I care for and live with her Mother, who has dementia. This cause really hits home for me and my family because we realize how much support is needed to help family members and loved ones who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. It is essential for us to help spread the word about this wonderful organization that supports the needs of people in our community suffering from this disease.
We are honored to chair the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s and are looking forward to another incredible turnout for this event.”

– Attorney Jeffrey Meldon

In Alachua County alone, as many as 1 in 9 adults age 65 and up are living with Alzheimer’s disease – a leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 800,000 family members and friends statewide provide care to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

On Walk day, attendees honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony – a mission-focused experience that signifies participants’ solidarity in the fight against the disease. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent participants’ personal connections to Alzheimer’s disease and the reasons they walk. “Alzheimer’s affects the lives of so many people across this country, including 580,000 individuals here in Florida,” said Jessica Marshall, executive director for the Alzheimer’s Association Central and North Florida Chapter. “At the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, with every step we take and every dollar we raise, we know we are that much closer to a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — and none of it would be possible without the support of local business.”

Walk to End Alzheimer’s Gainesville is scheduled for Saturday, October 22 at Trinity Methodist Church. Registration opens at 9a.m. and the ceremony begins at 10a.m. followed by the walk. Learn more at
