Each year, our team looks forward to gathering to support the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year, that support looks a little different. Our team members gathered independently, and with their families to support the Metro Detroit Walk to End Alzheimer’s in early September. With so much of our research taking place in Detroit, it was important to us to support the Metro Detroit community.
Then, in October, our team met in a socially distant manner outside of our offices to walk for the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Walk to End Alzheimer’s. We were happy to see our fellow team members and show our support for this cause. Our fundraising team, Michigan Medicine for a Cure, was the top fundraiser to the Walk, bringing in a total of $8,135 for the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Walk. Our Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement Core Director, Dr. Scott Roberts even placed as the third top fundraiser, raising a total of $3,950!
