They help generate revenue for things like: Educational programs; Family caregiver services; Afterhours caregiver phone; Monthly newsletter; lending library; File of Life Program; General operating expenses. Walks are a place where people just have fun. They laugh with others and laughing has been shown to relieve stress. Whether you Walk along or join friends, family or co-workers and walk as a team, please know that YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

Many walk to honor or remember a colleague, friend or loved one affected by Alzheimer’s or one of the related dementias.
