Florham Park, NJ- March 11, 2019—The Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey chapter today announced an inaugural statewide partnership with Fort Lee-based, health care provider, CareOne, LLC. CareOne has committed to be the 2019 New Jersey statewide sponsor of the five, Walk to End Alzheimer’s events – the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Funds raised through the partnership will enhance the Association’s care and support programs, including the 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900) and provide educational materials on brain health as well as funds for critical Alzheimer’s disease research and grassroots awareness activities.
