The journey that is Alzheimer’s is never an easy one. No two roads will be the same, and things may change from day to day. Although when there is hope, there is change. It is no secret that Clermont Park supports the Alzheimer’s Association. This year we raised money to support finding a cure. In total, residents and team members raised about $682 from fundraisers held in our community. We were also able to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s held in City Park on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
The weather was beautiful and there was not a cloud in the sky. The Denver Broncos drum team kicked off the walk with an upbeat salute, and we were off. Cheerleaders from a local high school rallied on the sidelines cheering us on as we passed. Musical performers could be seen along the route as well.
Our team consisted of four team members and seven residents. As we walked, along with representatives from other retirement communities and the general public, we took in the beauty of City Park. We all knew we were walking for those living with Alzheimer’s, those caring for loved ones living with Alzheimer’s, and those that have passed from Alzheimer’s. We will continue to have hope for a cure and support the different journeys that cross our path.
