St. Paul Elder Services (SPES), a community dedicated to enriching the life experience of the individuals it serves, is proud to share its sponsorship and participation in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Fox Cities event happening this Sunday, October 8th. Held in more than 600 communities across the country, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
As a corporate sponsor of the event, SPES will be participating in the Promise Garden Ceremony, a hands-on experience that allows participants to raise flowers representing their promise to remember, honor, care and fight for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. SPES will also host a selfie station along the two-mile course where walkers can take a photo with SPES’ certified therapy dog, Bella, who lives at its Kaukauna campus.
In addition to its sponsorship, SPES has assembled a team of associates to participate in the walk and has set a goal of fundraising $10,000.
“We are honored to support the important work of the Alzheimer’s Association. As a provider of memory care services, we see firsthand how important it is to offer support and research to those living with memory loss and their caregivers,” said Becky Reichelt, vice president at St. Paul Elder Services. “It is our hope that events like this will bring us one step closer to finding a cure for this devastating disease.”
