Posted Tuesday, January 16, 2018
Brooke Grove Retirement Village's (BGRV) Walk to End Alzheimer's team of staff, residents, volunteers, family members and friends raised a record $33,416 to benefit the Alzheimer's Association, announced Team Captain Janet Wright, BGRV's director of admissions, during a December 5 Awards Luncheon held at Brooke Grove Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
A top area fundraiser for many years, BGRV ranked second for the 2017 Washington, D.C. Walk, bested only by the Alzheimer's Association Board of Directors and Friends team. The National Capital Area Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association passed the $1 million mark for the first time, which is an additional reason for great celebration.
"Thank you to an amazing team! Your spirit is very inspiring," said Ms. Wright. "We look forward to the day when we see a field of white promise flowers symbolizing the first survivors of Alzheimer's. With Your continued support, we can make it happen!"
