Oct 21, 2014

TAMPA, FL.October 21, 2014 - RX Care Pharmacy will participate in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on November 1, 2014 in Tampa,Florida. 


The event organized by the Alzheimer’s association is the biggest of its kind in the world dedicated to increasing awareness and raising funds for care, support and research. 


RX Care Pharmacy has donated USD $1000 towards the campaign and is encouraging its entire staff to register to walk to end Alzheimer’s. 


Walk to End Alzheimer began in 1989, and was then known as the Memory Walk. At the time, nine chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association organized the event, in which 1,249 people participated. They succeeded in raising $149,000. By 1993, the event had grown to the point where it was held in 167 locations across the country and it managed to raise $4.5 million. 

In 2013, 42,000 teams took part in the event, now known as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and it raised in excess of $55 million. Millions of Americans support the battle against Alzheimer’s every year by participating in the walk which is held in more than 600 communities across the nation. 


The Alzheimer’s Association counts on companies to lead their communities and inspire them to support the fight against the disease, which is precisely what RX Care Pharmacy does. 


Rx Care Pharmacy is a Grand Champions Club member of the Alzheimer’s Association, an award provided in recognition of the company’s superior dedication to helping raise funds for the eradication of Alzheimer’s. 


Lindsay Wall, Rx Care Pharmacy pharmacist says the Pharmacy offers the highest level of professional advice and service, to help eradicate some of the world’s most debilitating diseases. “Our mission is fulfilled through participating in great events such as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” she says.
