Last Saturday, September 26th, Knox/Warren County residents joined together as one in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Over 200 Walkers gathered at the Hawthorne Center at 9 a.m. for the Galesburg Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
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!
