What an honor to walk with so many people committed to find and end to Alzheimer’s on Saturday, September 10, 2011.
The walk started at 9:30am on a beautiful, sunny day. Walkers of all ages helped raise over $31,000.00 from the Rice Lake area. There were many different ways money was raised such as raffle tickets towards vacations and savings bonds, rummage sales and carnivals or just plain asking for a donation. There even was a football raffled off with all the Green Bay Super Bowl Champions signatures on it.
I would like to thank all the staff and family members who participate in the walk. I especially would like to thank Gloria Widiker, Thomas Landing’s Memory Care Coordinator , for being our team leader to help us get organized and raise our share of the money. One of our residents was at the walk and helped direct traffic so people would know where to register. Also thank you Vera L.
With support from everyone we can find a way to end Alzheimer’s Disease.
PS: There is still time to donate to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Legends at Heritage Place team will be participating in their event on September 24th, along Lake George in St. Cloud, MN. Their donation page can be found along the right hand side of this blog, or by following this link.
