Genesee County businesses challenged to walk to end Alzheimer’s

By Jennifer Gallardo

The Alzheimer’s Association, Western New York Chapter, is challenging all local businesses to start a Walk to End Alzheimer’s team. Show your support of the more than 55,000 Western New Yorkers who are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

People affected by Alzheimer’s are surrounding you – they are your coworkers, clients, neighbors and friends. Form a walk team today, and you’ll be entered into the Memory Cup challenge, which is a competition between all of the corporate and health services to see who can raise the most team funds throughout Western New York for Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held at the Genesee County Nursing Home in Batavia on Saturday, Sept. 17. Additional Walks to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Sept. 17 in Medina, Sept. 24 in Buffalo and Oct. 1 in Chautauqua and Lewiston. For walk details or to register your team, visit

For assistance in organizing your company’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s team and fundraising ideas, contact our chapter office at 1.800.272.3900.
