Why We Walk:
Brookdale has been caring for individuals living with dementia for more than 30 years. At Brookdale, we live our mission, "Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity," with passion. Fighting to find a cure for Alzheimer's and supporting those living with dementia and their caregivers closely aligns with this mission.
Last year marked the fourth year that we surpassed the $2 million dollar mark for the Walk to End
Alzheimer’sŪ program as a Diamond National Team, and it’s entirely because our residents, families, associates, and business partners truly believe in their cause.
We raise funds through associate, resident and family participation in local Walk to End Alzheimer’sŪ events, from efforts of our home office associates in Nashville and Milwaukee and from company business partners. Since 2008, Brookdale has contributed nearly $12 million to the Walk to End Alzheimer’sŪ. These efforts are not just about donations, it’s about making a difference, because we see how dementia impacts lives every day.
Please join this nationwide effort as we walk to make a difference in the lives of those living with Alzheimer's, and the fight to find a cure. May we, all together, provide a future without Alzheimer's.
