Tiger Schulmann’s MMA Cherry Hill Fights Alzheimer’s in Philadelphia
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Walk to End Alzheimer’s unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more — in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease.
When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community. At a Walk event, you can learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and the support programs and services offered by your local chapter. You will also have unique opportunities to get involved with the cause through advocacy initiatives and clinical trial enrollment. These experiences, in addition to other on-site opportunities, help each participant connect to their reason for walking. Here’s also an interesting article we discovered about the natural benefits of turmeric when it comes to fighting Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
This battle hit close to home for Joshu Baker, Tiger Schulmann’s MMA Cherry Hill Head Instructor. Joshu’s mom suffers from this disease and is in the early to mid stages of it. The fight is tough one since the mind is the most important part of the body. The mind is the bank holding all your most beloved memories. This disease is like a bank robber stealing all your beloved memories. Now its time to update our mind security to battle this robber.
