Last weekend, Birmingham Green’s team members and their families participated in The Alzheimer’s Association Walk To End Alzheimer’s. Held annually in more than 600 communities across the country, this is the world’s largest fundraising event for Alzheimer’s care, research, and support.
Our campus had a table set up for those who planned on walking the one- or two-mile routes with complimentary hot cider and snacks to enjoy. We also provided information about Birmingham Green’s campus for those interested in our Assisted Living communities and Rehabilitation, Health Care, and Memory Care services.
630 participants and 139 teams, including the Birmingham Green team, registered for the walk in Manassas. Our participants dressed in plenty of purple, the signature color of The Alzheimer’s Association, and showed unwavering support for our residents and community members who live with this disease.
Flowers of varying colors were distributed to our team before we took to the route: purple represented those who have lost someone to Alzheimer’s; orange signified supporters and advocates for a world without the disease; and blue indicated that someone currently lives with Alzheimer’s. No matter which color our team members held, we all added our flowers to the fight to end Alzheimer’s.
Thank you to everyone who came out or supported us from home! We remain committed to bettering the lives of our residents and joining the fight to end Alzheimer’s.
