June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month. Rivers Casino is proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association® whose mission is to advance research to end Alzheimer’s and dementia while enhancing care and support for those living with the disease and their families.

 In the US, over 5 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and as many as 16 million will have the disease in 2050, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.  Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death.  Nearly one in every three seniors who dies each year has Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

 “One of the most important things we do at Rivers Casino is to become involved with local organizations.  Our work with the Alzheimer’s Association this June is so critical because of the vast number of people this disease affects.  We are looking to raise not just funds to help their fight, but to raise awareness and educate our team members and our customers,” said Corey Wise, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Rivers Casino.
