ElderCircle is coordinating a local memory walk at the end of September to benefit the Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Many of us work, live and love people with memory loss, and this would be a way to honor them and raise funds to help those individuals. More than 116,000 people in Minnesota and North Dakota have Alzheimer’s disease. Funds raised support programs and services for those individuals facing Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, as well as programs and services for their families and care partners. In addition, funds support advocacy for better care and research toward treatments and a cure. If you are interested in participating in the walk or donating, please contact Mindy Nuhring at 218-999-9233.
