Hundreds walk to raise thousands to fight Alzheimer’s disease
Having been postponed for a week due to a forecast of heavy rains, the 14th annual South Shore Walk to End Alzheimer’s was about a third smaller than in years past. But the passion and commitment of the several hundred folks who participated was nevertheless palpable.
“For the people who attended, it was such a meaningful event, because every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to a cure,” said Connie Lesko, co-organizer of the walk.
Themed “Fighting for the First Survivor,” this year’s walk brought in an early total of more than $27,000, an amount sure to grow as teams that couldn’t make the rescheduled event turn in donations through the end of the year.
