Jefferson County’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held Sunday, Sept. 14, was successful, says organizer Lana Likens.
This year’s walk raised more than $4,800 for the Alzheimer’s Association. Proceeds included donations gathered by walkers, t-shirt sponsorships, and other sponsorships.
“This is the largest number of walkers we’ve had in recent years, and the largest amount we have raised to help end Alzheimer’s Disease,” said Coordinator Lana Likens, director of public relations at Jefferson Community Health Center.
In addition, many local businesses and individuals supported the 35 walkers as they raised money for the Alzheimer’s Association. Walk to End Alzheimer’s funds assist the Alzheimer’s Association with services and support for families coping with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as ongoing research and education.
