Creekers Walk to End Alzheimer’s Raising Awareness and $3,000

Teri Sellers

The Alzheimer’s Association posted the following on their website: “The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to ending Alzheimer’s.

This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere—on every sidewalk, track and trail.

Your health and safety are our top priorities. This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering—instead, we invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.”

Last year, the PebbleCreek Alzheimer’s Support Group got together to raise awareness and funds to combat Alzheimer’s. I named us The Creekers, and we walked the Walk at Beardsley Rec Center.

This year, The Creekers hosted a neighborhood walk on Oct. 21. Almost 30 mask-wearing people showed up at Sunrise Park to walk and take part in the raffle. Twelve awesome gift baskets were raffled off with all the funds going to The Alzheimer’s Association. We raised $3,000!

Thank you to everyone who participated or donated!
