Alzheimer's disease is one of the most devastating diseases that remains widespread in the world today. There is no cure yet, but fundraising events help ensure that doctors keep working on one. Last month, employees from Seeta Eye Centers joined together in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, walking over the Hudson River in Highland, New York.
The event involved 138 teams, who raised a total of $190,000 for Alzheimer's research, exceeding the event's goal by 23%.
"It takes a lot of people working together to accomplish something great," said Seeta office manager Stacey Koch. "Thanks to all the people donating their money and time to events like these, we're closer to finding a cure for Alzheimer's than ever before."
Our staff represented Seeta Eye Centers well at the event, bringing along several friends and family members. Many people walking carried large cloth flowers that represented the walker's relationship with the disease. Check out our Facebook page to see pictures of the event.
