Consumers Credit Union has participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s since 2006. We are once again a proud sponsor of this year’s event, where a team of 20 employees will walk for a shared vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
Micki Florinchi, Robyn Thatcher, and Katie Warren lead the team from Consumers. “I learned about the Walk to End Alzheimer’s shortly after my mother was diagnosed with the disease,” says Robyn. “That was the first year we formed a team, and it’s been growing ever since.”
The Consumers team has committed to raising $5,000 for the cause. Funds raised go towards eliminating Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, providing and enhancing care and support for those affected by the devastating disease, and to reducing the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
This year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on September 22 at Celery Flats in Portage. Registration begins at noon, while the one or three mile walk will step off at 1:30. This year, walkers from Allegan and Calhoun counties are also joining the Kalamazoo event.
