Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Big 4 Wrap-Up


It seems just like yesterday it was the beginning of September, but here we are and Walk season is complete!

Thank you and congratulations to all of our fundraising teams, captains, participants and volunteers who made these events a huge success this year! Special thanks to our major sponsors Mercy McAuley, Oakwood Village, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Garbry Ridge, Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County, Piqua Manor, Story Point, Cargill, Assurant, Families for Alzheimer’s Awareness, Home Instead Springfield.

The “Big 4 Walks” in Greenville, Miami County, Sidney and Springfield boasted beautiful weather, amazing turnouts, and moving Promise Garden ceremonies.  While we are still collecting donations until the end of the year, currently our standings are as follows:

Springfield: Over $99,000
Miami County:  More than $57,000
Sidney: Almost $49,000

Greenville: Over $23,000

That is a total of at least $228,000, with more donations still coming in!

Donations for the “Big 4 Walks” will provide local care and support services including a number of support groups, educational programs and one-on-one care consultations with our program staff . . . . helping thousands of people with dementia and their caregivers and families across the Miami Valley.

We look forward to seeing everyone in 2018!
