This past Saturday, team members from the Chaffin Luhana LLP Law Firm, along with their families, friends, and 4,000 other Pittsburgh area residents walked along the North Shore in an effort to fight Alzheimer’s Disease.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this 2-mile walk to raise awareness for such an important and life-altering issue.
The Chaffin Luhana team raised $1,450 for the Alzheimer’s Association which will be used to raise awareness, provide support, and advance research on this life-threatening disease which affects 5.7 million Americans.
This debilitating disease impacts not only the patients, but also the family and friends which provide care and support throughout the stages of the disease. In Pennsylvania alone, over 400,000 adults suffer from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, which directly impacts over 675,000 caregivers.
Currently, Alzheimer’s Disease is the sixth most common cause of death in America and unfortunately, very little is known about the disease. There is no cure or prevention at this time, which is why raising awareness and supporting research for this disease is so important.

As a member of The Injury Board, Chaffin Luhana has come together with nearly 100 other law firms across the country for this year’s Day of Action in an effort to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
Along with participating in Alzheimer’s Association Walks, the firm will be interviewing 13 members of the Alzheimer’s community, including researchers, caregivers, support counselors, and more. We’ll be publishing our interviews in various formats across our New York, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia Legal Examiner sites throughout the month of November, which is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
If you’d like to stay up to date on our Alzheimer’s disease interviews, be sure to follow us on Facebook. We’ll be sharing the interviews as they’re published.
