To cap-off a year of fundraising, The Fountains at Canterbury raised more than $10,000 for the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer’s charity event hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association, ranking them in the top five teams for this year’s honor roll.
Residents at The Fountains at Canterbury hold numerous fundraising activities throughout the year to support the Alzheimer’s Association including bake sales, garage sales, a homemade tie-dye T-shirt sale, a walk and more.
“The Fountains at Canterbury and our residents are very passionate about promoting awareness for Alzheimer’s research and care,” said Scott Steinmetz, executive director at The Fountains at Canterbury. “As the sixth leading cause of death in the Unites States, it’s a disease that deserves more attention.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, every 67 seconds a person in the United States develops Alzheimer’s Disease and more than five million people are living with it today. By 2050, these numbers could nearly triple, from five million to more than 13 million.
