Freedom Village at Brandywine to Host Second Annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Walk to End Alzheimer's

WEST BRANDYWINE, PA — Freedom Village at Brandywine, a premier Life Plan Community, announced that it will be hosting its second annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Friday, October 6, 2023, at 10 a.m., on their campus located at 15 Freedom Blvd., West Brandywine, PA 19320.

The annual walk supports the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the walk is for a great cause, and this event is unique because it is the second year Freedom Village is hosting it on their campus, allowing all residents and staff of the community the ability to participate, even those in wheelchairs or who need a walker or device for assistance.

The walk will go around the perimeter of the community with various snack stations located throughout the walk, followed by a live music performance on campus after.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the Walk to End Alzheimer’s for the second year in a row,” said Danielle Geyer, executive director of Freedom Village at Brandywine. “This event is not only for a great cause, but it also brings our community together to support each other and those affected by Alzheimer’s. We hope to see a great turnout and raise even more money than last year.”

For more information or to register for the walk, please visit the Freedom Village Brandywine team page on the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Alzheimer’s Association page.

Freedom Village has been performing different fundraisers to raise money, including a homemade soup sale, a bananas foster sale, an ice cream social and sale, a 50/50 raffle and a t-shirt sale. They have also been running a “casual for a cause” campus event, which is every Friday, where staff are allowed to pay $3 to be able to wear jeans to work. From those fundraisers, Freedom Village has already raised over $2,000, with a goal of raising $2,500.
