The Alzheimer’s Association hosted its Annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s this past Saturday, September 29th, at Raley Field in West Sacramento.
This year’s event was the first time the event was held at Raley Field, which was a change from hosting it at the Capitol in downtown Sacramento. This year’s event in Sacramento included over 2,500 participants and raised over $500,000 to support the organization’s efforts to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.
ApexCare’s very own Community Relations Manager, April Carni, was one of the Committee Chairs of this year’s walk and also organized our company’s team for Sacramento. Thank you, April for all of your wonderful work for the Alzheimer’s Association and ApexCare.
Also, I wanted to thank and congratulate LeAnn Fong-Batkin, who individually raised $765 for our team and for the Alzheimer’s Association. What an amazing accomplishment! Also, thank you to all of the ApexCare’s participants who joined our team and helped our overall team raise $1,200 towards Alzheimer’s research.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease!
