Mr. Fazzino's official artwork will also appear on a scarf created by Echo Design commemorating the 20th Anniversary of NYC’s Memory Walk.
There are currently more than 250,000 people in our New York City community with Alzheimer’s disease as well as family members and caregivers. Nationwide, there are more than 5.2 million Americans -- 500,000 under the age of 60. By teaming up with the Alzheimer's Association, people of all ages can walk with a purpose – and move us closer to a world without Alzheimer's. The New York City Chapter is currently recruiting walkers to join Memory Walk.
Lou-Ellen Barkan, President and CEO of the Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter said, "We are so pleased to have world renowned Charles Fazzino as the Official Artist for our 20th Annual Memory Walk. We are confident that the sale of his beautifully designed posters and scarves will not only help us raise funds, but also serve as a powerful reminder to New Yorkers that we must work together to sustain the community as the epidemic of Alzheimer’s grows.”
Mr. Fazzino, Commemorative Artist for Super Bowl XLIII, stated from his studio in New York, “I am honored to have been asked by the Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter to commemorate its 20th Annual Memory Walk. Hopefully, my official artwork will contribute to help the Chapter to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research."
The two-mile walk is expected to raise $1.25 million. To register, start a team or donate visit www.alznyc.org/
