What Is Alzheimer’s | How is Forum Group spreading awareness for this disease

When we think of the most deadly diseases prevailing in the world, our minds directly think about fast-spreading, and the incurable ones that grab the headlines from time to time. But according to researches, many of such diseases don’t even rank in the top 10 reasons for worldwide deaths. The majority of people all around the world passed away due to diseases that progress slowly.

And one of the major causes that account for deaths which also made the top 10 list is: ‘Alzheimer’s’.

Forum Group is always concerned about the well-being and health of the people associated with the group. For this, the group always comes up with various marathons and events in order to keep citizens fit and healthy. One such initiative is,

Forum Purple Run’19:

We Udaipurites shop and always have a tremendous time at the Forum Celebration Mall. Now, it’s our turn to make our mark present in Udaipur’s history as well, history to create awareness about this common yet unknown disease: Alzheimer’s. It’s time to make it real BIG by participating in Forum Purple Run’19. Everyone can be part of such a noble cause.

It is India’s first-ever run organized by renowned Forum Group, for creating awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. The main aim is to create awareness, sensitivity, and dignity towards this disease.

Now let us understand what Alzheimer’s is:

It is a syndrome which is associated with the decline of brain functioning specifically amongst the people aged 50 or above. It majorly affects the memory storing capacity, thinking, logical skills and other mental abilities.

The exact cause of this disease is not yet known, still, several factors are thought to increase your risk of developing this disease.

These include:

  • Growing old,
  • Hereditary conditions,
  • Depressions, and many more.

Various Stages of Alzheimer’s disease:

•Stage 1: Normal Outward Behavior

When your loved one is in this early phase, he won’t have any symptoms that’ll show that they have got Alzheimer’s. But as they move into the further stages, you will see major changes in their thinking and reasoning.

•Stage 2: Very Mild Changes

You still might not notice major changes, but they might be picking up on small differences. This could include forgetting a word or misplacing objects.

•Stage 3: Mild Decline

At this point that you may start to notice changes in the patient’s thinking.

•Stage 4: Moderate Decline

During this time, the problems in their thinking and reasoning that you noticed in the stage get more obvious. They might forget important details about themselves.

Though Alzheimer’s has no cure as such, treatments for symptoms are still available and research to find a cure continues. Current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop this disease from progressing, but they can temporarily slow the worsening of the symptoms and improve quality of life. Today, there is a worldwide effort under experiment to find better ways to treat the disease, delay the disease’s onset, and prevent it from developing further.

940 Runners Participated in Udaipur’s biggest running event ‘Purple Run’

Purple run initiated by Forum Celebration Mall was organized on 30th September 2018. This running event became an instant hit amongst all the fitness freaks of the city making it Udaipur’s biggest running event. As a matter of fact, there were around 1200 registrations from in and around the city. More than 940 runners aged from 6 years to 82 years ran for a single cause which was ‘Alzheimer’s’.

Alzheimer’s is a brain disorder which slowly weakens the memory and thinking skills of an individual. In the later stages, the disease deteriorates in such a way that it disturbs the ability to carry out even the simplest tasks of the day. Experts say that more than 44 million people may have this irreversible disease in the world.

The main event ‘Purple Run’ was preceded by two pre-events. One was the fitness challenge which took place on 25th August where people were challenged with several physical activities such as squat challenge, pushup challenge, battle rope challenge, tire flip challenge, cone stacking challenge, etc. And the other pre-event was the running training session by coach Rahul which was conducted on September 12th.

The chief guest of the ‘Purple Run’ was Udaipur’s additional S.P Swati Sharma who flagged off the race. Moreover, the race was divided into 4 categories which were 3kms, 5kms, 10kms, and 21kms. At the end of the race, Udaipur’s collector Mr. Vishnu Charan Malik gave away the trophies and awards to the winners and race ambassadors.

Along with Forum Celebration Mall, the event was simultaneously conducted in 7 malls of 6 cities in which more than 12,000 runners contributed to the cause.
