Alzheimer’s Walk in September

This year’s Cowley County Walk to End Alzheimer’s is Saturday, Sept. 30, in Winfield. Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor has organized a team and is already hard at work raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

You can support their efforts with two delicious events this month — a hamburger feed and Krispy Kreme donut sales. The team’s goal is to raise $5,000, said Sarah Standerfer, team captain.

Sarah said there’s still time to join the Presbyterian Manor team, register a team of your own to walk, or register as an individual. Go to alz.org/walk and click on “Find Your Walk.” There, you can search by state.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Since 1989, the Alzheimer’s Association has mobilized millions of Americans to participate in fundraising walks and their efforts to end Alzheimer’s – the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

Last year’s Cowley County walk raised $13,600 overall, and the Presbyterian Manor crew took first place in team fundraising.

Let’s make sure our team comes out on top again!
