According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia and every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease.”
This year, a dedicated team from Our Lady of Angels Retirement Home has decided to join the fight against Alzheimer’s by participating in Will County’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 6th. OLA team members currently include Rebecca Reiter, Jake Ancel, Carolyn Krause Platt, John Ancel, Skylar Carter, Anita Lane, Paula Hargis, Jenny Guiney, Jodi Ancel, Stormy Reiter, Thomas Reiter, Veronica Turner and Ashley Vehrs.
The team has currently raised roughly $1,500 and hopes to meet a goal of $2,000 by October 6th. All funds go directly to Alzheimer’s care, support and research. If you would like to help Team OLA reach their goal, please consider donating here. You can donate directly to the team as a group or select which team member you’d like to support.
As the number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s grows each year, we need to be vigilant to spread awareness, support medical research and support those currently suffering from or caring for loved ones with the disease.
On behalf of our OLA community, we would like to wish all participants a successful walk this upcoming weekend!
