Walk to end Alzheimer’s raised nearly $45,000

The recent Minot area Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held on Aug. 27, drew approximately 150 participants from 21 teams who raised nearly $45,000 to support local community members impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Contributions raised help fund the Alzheimer’s Association’s support groups, 24/7 Helpline, educational community classes, research efforts around the world and advocacy for Alzheimer’s legislation on a state and federal level.

The top fundraising team was Little Steps of Hope by Strata, raising $3,730 for the association.

“This team is truly inspiring and does their best each and every year to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. We are so lucky and thankful to have them in our community,” said Walk Manager Emily Bultema.

Frankie Morin and her family were the Honorary Family at the walk.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is produced by a community team of volunteers and staff from the Alzheimer’s Association and is supported by local businesses, including Marketplace Foods which contributed more than $18,000 to the cause through its point of purchase fundraisers.
