Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It is an inspiring experience for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It’s truly motivating to see so many teams and participants come together. I support the Alzheimer’s Association through the Walk not because it’s what I do Monday- Friday 9-5 but because of the impact Alzheimer’s disease has had on my life.
One of the most awe-inspiring experiences I’ve had with the Alzheimer’s Association is getting to work with Inglett & Stubbs. Inglett & Stubbs, a rather philanthropic company in Metro Atlanta, invited us into their workplace to share what we know about Alzheimer’s, what we do and where we’re going. To raise $75,000 in any climate is impressive, but to witness I&S doing so the past few months has been invigorating
Not only have the dedicated, committed and motivated employees been busy fundraising but they’ve had fun doing so. From a motorcycle ride to a happy hour to a garage sale to selling point of purchase flowers- they’ve done a lot.
Fully embracing our mission, I&S employees have opened their minds and schedule to educate themselves on the disease as well.
We all know that Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. That an estimated 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today. But I bet you didn’t know that a commercial electrical contracting company was doing all that they can to make our vision a reality: A World Without Alzheimer’s.
