Walk to End Alzheimer's in Northwoods raises $90,536

Residents from Rhinelander and the surrounding Northwoods area joined the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's in the fight to end Alzheimer's disease on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Rhinelander High School.

To date, participants have raised $90,536 to support the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer's Association, according to an Alzheimer's Association press release. Fundraising will continue over the next few months as walkers forward additional donations by mail, drop-off or online.

"The money raised at our Walks allows us to provide local care and support services to ease the burden on those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, said Laurie Schill, Executive Director, Alzheimer's Association Wisconsin chapter. "It also fuels our public policy efforts and allows us to advance critical research towards finding a cure. We are so appreciative of all of our Walkers and supporters because we truly couldn't do what we do without your help."

Donations can still be made to the Walk to End Alzheimer's and should be directed to the Alzheimer's Association, DePere office at 3313 Packerland Dr., Suite E, DePere, Wisconsin, 54115. Please designate contributions to the Walk to End Alzheimer's, Northwoods. Donations can also be made online through Dec. 31 at www.alz.org/wi.

The money raised by the Northwoods Walk is used to fund research and services including support groups, information and referral services, care consultations and a 24/7 Helpline, 1-800-272-3900.
