CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — For the third year in a row, Morning Pointe Senior Living brought home the Top Corporate Team Award for being the top fundraiser during the Sept. 17 Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the Tennessee Riverpark.

The five Chattanooga area Morning Pointe senior living and memory care communities raised $13,000, surpassing last year’s fundraising efforts.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the combined efforts of our Morning Pointe communities — not only in funds raised, but in hours spent and lives touched — to support the Alzheimer’s Association and this important cause,” said Greg A. Vital, president and CEO Independent Healthcare Properties and Morning Pointe Senior Living.

Associates, residents and families rolled up their sleeves to raise money, washing cars, hosting yard sales and selling handmade items among other activities to benefit the Alzheimer’s walk.

“Our residents couldn’t be more excited to participate and they are already looking forward to next year’s walk,” said Holly Holcomb, Senior Life Enrichment Director at Morning Pointe of Chattanooga at Shallowford.
