From the article: 

The annual walk supports the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the walk is for a great cause. This is the second year Freedom Village is hosting it on its campus, allowing all residents and staff of the community to participate, even those in wheelchairs or who need a walker or device for assistance.

The walk will go around the perimeter of the community with various snack stations located throughout the walk, followed by a live music performance afterwards on campus.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the Walk to End Alzheimer’s for the second year in a row,” said Danielle Geyer, executive director of Freedom Village at Brandywine. “This event is not only for a great cause, but it also brings our community together to support each other and those affected by Alzheimer’s. We hope to see a great turnout and raise even more money than last year.”

Freedom Village has been performing different fundraisers to raise money, including a homemade soup sale, a bananas foster sale, an ice cream social and sale, a 50/50 raffle, and a t-shirt sale. They have also been running a “casual for a cause” campus event, which is every Friday, where staff are allowed to pay $3 to be able to wear jeans to work. From those fundraisers, Freedom Village has already raised over $2,000, with a goalof raising $2,500.
