On October 26th, a group of The Wesley Community’s residents and staff gathered at SUNY Adirondack to take part in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
In support of this cause, Wesley held fundraising events leading up to walk that included raffles, t-shirt sales, bake sales, Causual for a Cause purchases and more. With these funds and an additional pledge from The Wesley Community for $1500, Wesley’s staff and friends raised a total of $5,869.55 for The Alzheimer’s Association!
Alzheimer’s is a disease Wesley cares about deeply. Wesley Health Care Center’s memory-care unit is designed to aide individuals dealing with early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and chronic dementia. Led by our Alzheimer’s Engagement Coach, Carl Picioccio, our proactive programs and activities are designed to keep them stimulated and alert in all aspects of life, as their ability allows.
Thank you to everyone who took part and helped raise funds for this important cause!
