Thursday, September 24th marked our 5th Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Central Illinois- and an exceptional one at that! Over 200 people gathered at Avanti’s Dome in Pekin for a night dedicated to ending Alzheimer’s!
Walkers gathered inside the Dome for food, pictures and fun! The Walk kicked off to a great start with warm up stretches led by Pekin High School cheerleaders and a countdown from KISS FM as the walkers made their way to the outdoor walk route! It was a beautiful night accompanied by a beautiful sunset as walkers placed their flowers, signifying why they walk to end Alzheimer’s, in the promise garden.
We are excited to announce that the Tazewell Walk to End Alzheimer’s beat their fundraising goal, raising over $50,000!!!! Amazing! Fundraising is not over just yet, though! Walkers can continue to raise money through November 30, 2015. A very special thank you to all sponsors, volunteers and walkers who made this Walk such a success! The following team and walkers were recognized for their above-and-beyond fundraising efforts.
