The 17th Annual Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk was held on Saturday June 5th at Kinney Civic Plaza in Albuquerque. There was a Kids Korner, K9 Korner, Refreshments, a Raffle, and a Silent Auction as well as other booths. In Memory Of and In Honor of banners were available for participants to write messages on and they were held by volunteers during the Opening Ceremonies while bagpipers played Amazing Grace. They were then carried on the 1K walk. We had the option of a 1K, 2K or 5K walk and of course we did the 5K! :) There were more volunteers along the walk course with signs, water and cheers. We were all tired after the event but had a great time and plan to do it again next year!
The Alzheimer's Association has received a total of $113,679 in donations and Team Perry's Termite made $565 of their $600 goal. Our team members were Ken, Diana, Patricia and Bruce. Way to go team!
