Participants raised more than $30,000.00 to support the care, support, and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association.
“I’m so proud of this community for coming together and helping us raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association to help continue to provide programs and services in this area as well as fund research for a cure,” said Jennifer Brownlee, Walk Manager.
“We would not be as successful as we are without the generosity of our sponsors, participants, committee and volunteers.”
Memory Lane’s Forget-Me-Nots was the top fundraising team at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, raising more $7,000.00.

Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In Pennsylvania alone, there are more than 400,000 people living with the disease and 676,000 caregivers.
