KENNETT SQUARE, PA — Nearly 70 teams affiliated with Genesis HealthCare joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. Despite the pandemic, participants for the National Team raised approximately $100,000 to fund Alzheimer’s Association care, support and research programs. Genesis HealthCare has continued to add to their lifetime achievement of more than $1,000,000 in support of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
“I was inspired by Genesis HealthCare participants joining in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” said Chief Operating Officer, Melissa Powell. “With the funds raised, the Alzheimer’s Association will be able to provide much needed education, support services and care to families affected by this devastating disease, as well as fund critically-needed Alzheimer’s research.”
More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – a leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 11 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The dedication of Genesis HealthCare will help the Alzheimer’s Association continue to move forward with its vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
