Walking to End Alzheimer's Disease
Each year, MSUFCU employees join together with the Alzheimer’s Association to participate in and volunteer during the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in downtown Lansing in hopes of creating a world without Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is a debilitating disease that is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, and currently, over five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Working together, we hope to ensure that someday, we live in a world without Alzheimer’s. The Walk is just one of the many ways that the Alzheimer’s Association brings awareness and raises funds for the cause. The 2019 Lansing Walk has raised over $235,000 for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research! Six MSUFCU volunteers helped to register walkers the day of the event.
"It was amazing watching people from all over Mid-Michigan brave the wind and rain to support such a great cause! I am thankful to have been a part of this event for the first time and looking forward to many more years helping to end Alzheimer's," said Steven, an MSUFCU employee and volunteer of the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
Credit Union employees volunteer their time and participate in walks and runs throughout the year to help raise funds and awareness for various causes. MSUFCU is proud to support the Alzheimer’s Association and their mission of creating a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
