The Founder and CEO of The Cottages talks about the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer’s and how the community can get active.
Frisco, TX, Sept. 07, 2016 – The Cottages at Chapel Creek and other Cottages Senior Living locations across Texas are gearing up for the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The event is the nation’s largest meant to raise awareness and funding to fight Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to taking part in the Oct. 1 walk in The Colony, the staff at Chapel Creek is also playing host to a silent auction to raise money for its team.
“The Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an event that is near and dear to our hearts,” says Trent Quinn, founder, founder and CEO of The Cottages Senior Living. “It is an honor and privilege to take part in an event that may someday help bring an end to Alzheimer’s disease and help the millions of Americans who are living with it daily. It is also our privilege to be able to open up participation on The Cottages teams to our community and the families of loved ones who call The Cottages home.”
In order to exceed their goal, The Cottages at Chapel Creek has set up a silent auction on September 15 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at their residences located at 8111 Wade Blvd., in Frisco. Supporters are invited to stop by and bid on items created and donated by residents and staff between those hours. Donations of items for the auction are also being accepted. For more information about donating, call Kerston at 972-668-5200.
The Chapel Creek team is taking part in the 2016 Grandscape Walk to End Alzheimer’s in The Colony. The walk begins at 8:30 a.m. October 1 in the Grandscape area. The overall goal for the community-based event has been set at $430,000.
Community members who would like to join or donate to The Cottages at Chapel Creek’s team are invited to visit the walk’s website for more information.
“We cannot think of a better way to spend a Saturday than getting out with our community to help raise money and awareness to end Alzheimer’s disease once and for all,” says Quinn.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s takes place in 600 different communities across the country between September and October. Money raised during the event benefits the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to provide care, support, research, awareness and advocacy for the estimated 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s Disease.
