This week I attended another committee meeting for the upcoming walk in September.  (I am the co-chair again this year!)

We are currently looking to sign up the corporate sponsors.  If you think your company would be interested in being a sponsor, please contact me.  You can email me:  lisa(at)seniorlivingexperts.com. Last year there were 6,000 walkers!

Corporate sponsors have tables at the walk to share their information with the walkers.  They also get their logo on the back of the memory walk T-shirts.  There are other benefits as well, but the T-shirt is my favorite. What a great opportunity as well as a great way to give back.  Most sponsors give a donation, but some donate time, food or talent as well.  We are currently looking for a nice coffee donation!  Starbucks anyone??

In case you are wondering, proceeds go directly to fund
local programs and services designed to improve the lives of those
affected by Alzheimer’s.

In a Gallup poll commissioned by the Alzheimer’s Association, 1 in 10
Americans said that they had a family member with Alzheimer’s and 1 in
3 knew someone with the disease. The number of Americans with
Alzheimer’s disease will continue to grow – by 2050 the number of
individuals with Alzheimer’s could total 16 million.
