We are pleased to announce the eigth year of Walk to Remember. The last few years have seen progress in meeting our goal to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease as well as giving free grants to Sanilac County residents for respite care to those affected by the disease. We are hoping to continue this progress and invite you to join us. This year’s walk will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Contributions from this fundraiser will continue to be distributed through free grants for respite care, which allow family/friends’ relief from the tasks of caregiving. This year’s 5K Run/Walk will take place on the Sandusky Diamond Trail, located next to Maple Valley Elementary School.
Walk to Remember is an initiative of Sanilac County Building Ties. Building Ties is a group of professionals from local businesses and agencies who are affiliated with the Sanilac County Building Ties committee. Contributions from this fundraiser will be distributed in the form of free grants to provide respite care to families and caregivers for residents of Sanilac County diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Donations are given by local individuals and businesses.
