Staff reports

TROY — Did you know that every 66 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s disease? The clock is ticking, but you can help make a difference.

Alzheimer’s disease is a health epidemic affecting more than 8,000 members of the Miami County community.

The Alzheimer’s Association Miami Valley Chapter is inviting Miami county residents to attend a Volunteer Open House on Thursday, May 12, from 4:30-6 p.m. to learn more about volunteer opportunities for the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

The Open House will take place at Fricker’s Troy at 1187 Experiment Farm Road. Food and drink will be provided and a cash bar will be available. Stop by any time to learn more and speak with other volunteers.

The Miami County Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the downtown Troy Courthouse Plaza. The Alzheimer’s Association will once again be partnering with the Taste of Troy, happening immediately after the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in downtown Troy. Each registered Walk participant will receive three free food tickets.

Learn more and register for the Walk online at or by calling the 24/7 Helpline at (800) 272-3900.
