Participants walked gathered for the opening ceremony in the gym and then placed their flowers in the Promise garden before beginning their two mile walk. We are excited to announce that over $28,000 was raised for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Still want to fundraise or donate? No problem! Walkers can continue to fundraise through November 30, 2015!
