Alzheimer’s Supporters To Rally At State Capitol
ST. PAUL -- A big rally supporting those affected with Alzheimer's Disease is being planned for tomorrow (Thursday) at the State Capitol.
Organizers say the rally will include information about a new report, along with recommendations for a statewide initiative to "Prepare Minnesota For Alzheimer's 2020".
If you're interested in attending the event, a bus will leave from the Red Cross Building on St. Germain Street in St. Cloud at 8:15 a.m. tomorrow. If you go, you're encouraged to wear purple.
Event organizers say in the next 15 years the number of Minnesotans with Alzheimer's Disease will soar to more than 135,000, and the total cost of care for these individuals could reach an estimated $10 billion.
