More than 225 area residents participated in this year’s Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Walk to End Alzheimer’s.Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, participants walked as individuals and small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Gloucester, Tappahannock and other locations on Oct. 3, raising $73,638 to support the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association, surpassing the goal of $70,500.
“We are so grateful to our walk participants, volunteers, sponsors, and the Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck community for their hard work and efforts in making this year’s event a success in spite of the obstacles this year has brought to our community,” said Marie Kolendo Sr., Executive Director of the Greater Richmond Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. “We appreciate everyone’s creativity in taking their own steps against Alzheimer’s disease and to raise critical funds for Alzheimer’s research and local support services.”
