According to the Alzheimer’s Association, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, participants walked as individuals and small groups on sidewalks, tracks, and trails across Lexington on September 12, raising more than $128,800 to support the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association.

 

They say fighting Together was named the top fundraising team at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, raising more than $7,055.

“We know fundraising in this pandemic is challenging but our reason remains simple: to find the first survivor of Alzheimer’s,” said Molly Hogan, Ashland Walk Manager. “Funds are still accepted through December 31st and we are so grateful for everyone’s support.”

Participants are continuing to raise money through the end of the year to reach their goal of $150,000. Donations are accepted online at http://act.alz.org/lexington.
