Press release from Alzheimer’s Aim Advocacy:

Lynn McKenna, Alzheimer’s Aim Advocacy Chair on the left and Jeanne O’Neale, Visiting Angels CEO and Team Captain on the right, present a $657.63 check to Kim Coelho, the local Alzheimer’s Association Community Engagement Manager. These funds were raised through a See’s Candy holiday sale.This year’s in-person walk is planned for October 9, 2021. If this is not possible, we will go to a virtual format. Last year the local Visiting Angels team finished 6th in the nation for all Visiting Angels Teams for funds raised. They also had the highest number of members at 145. These two rankings gave the team a $10,000 bonus from the Visiting Angels CEO. We invite the public to join the Eureka Visiting Angle’s Walk To End Alzheimer’s Team. Donations to help support the team are also welcomed. To join or donate, go to Visiting Angels Eureka Walk To End Alz. Click on Humboldt County, CA: Visiting Angels Eureka and follow the prompts. If you or someone you know is suffering from Alzheimers please contact Kim Coehlo at 707 832-4577 X 1240. We have a wealth of information to help people deal with this deadly disease in brochure form or on our website at alz.org. There is a 24/7 toll free Helpline staffed by professionals who speak 200 different languages. No one should have to deal with this disease alone. Alzheimer’s doesn’t stop and neither will we until a cure is found. #EndALZ
