Genesis HealthCare Raises Over $165,000 as a National Team for Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®
KENNETT SQUARE, PA–More than 140 teams from Genesis HealthCare joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. Participants for the National Team raised more than $165,000 to fund Alzheimer’s Association care, support and research programs.
“I was inspired by Genesis HealthCare participants joining in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” said CEO George V. Hager, Jr. “With the funds raised, the Alzheimer’s Association will be able to provide much needed education, support services and care to families affected by this devastating disease, as well as fund critically-needed Alzheimer’s research.”

Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The dedication of Genesis HealthCare will help the Alzheimer’s Association continue to move forward with its vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
