Care Supervisor Nancy Jones lost her grandfather to Alzheimer’s disease.

As a result, her parents started an Alzheimer’s Support Group in the 1980s. Now, her father is afflicted with the disease.

Understandably, Nancy is passionate about Alzheimer’s charities, events, and organizations.

That’s why she is organizing Midwest Family Care‘s participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a charity walk taking place on Sunday, October 7 at Memorial High School. The walk, held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, is the world’s largest Alzheimer’s fundraising event.

Participants form teams with friends, family, and co-workers, raising sponsorship donations which go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a great opportunity to raise money for a great cause while spending a family-focused day. Plus, it’s great exercise!
