Morning Pointe assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care communities from across the Tennessee Valley banded together for the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the Tennessee Riverpark in Chattanooga. Residents, associates, and volunteers from Morning Pointe communities throughout the greater Chattanooga area walked to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and fund research for a cure. Team Morning Pointe represented one of the top fundraisers at the event, collecting thousands of dollars in donations for the Alzheimer’s Association. “More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease today. We must do everything in our power to work for a cure, but until that cure is discovered, we must also give Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers the support they need,” says The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga (TN) executive director Alisha Landes. “Knowing that the money raised will be going toward the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to fight Alzheimer’s on all fronts gives me so much hope. It was an honor to be able to show our support for a cause that is so dear to our hearts.”
