WE DID IT AND WE ARE STILL GOING!!!

Our company-wide 4th C Ultimate Step Challenge to support the Alzheimer’s Association started this week! Updates on the challenge and how we are tracking our step Goal will be posted here throughout the week.  Alzheimer’s has no cure and over 60 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s today.  It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined.  Let’s join together to #EndAlz

FTI’s goal is to walk over 10 million steps. Through FTI’s Charity Committee, The 4th C… we will donate $25.00 for every 5,000 steps employee’s walk to the Alzheimer’s Association.

If you would like to join us, you can donate at  2021 The Longest Day: FTI Steps for a Cure | The Longest Day – Help Fight Alzheimer’s on June 20, 2021 .  Below is our current counter and status.  Keep checking back to see our progress!


Raising Awareness:

Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life.

Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer’s are 65 and older.

Alzheimer’s worsens over time. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years.

Alzheimer’s has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. Although current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop Alzheimer’s from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life.
