This is our "Year 4". Team Turner was formed to honor my dad, Jimmy Turner and my grandma, Tressie Turner. We started out in 2017 and raised $2,631. It was so emotional to be at the walk with so many others who had been affected by this incurable disease. I felt inspired to continue and to raise even more money. This disease has hurt so many, not only those with the disease, but those who love someone with it. Alzheimers needs to end! We need a cure!
Each year we have stepped up our fundraising efforts. In 2018, we raised $3,806.65 and in 2019 we exceeded our goal and raised $5,515. This year we have aimed even higher. Our goal for 2020 is $7,500 and we hope that you will help us to reach this goal.
Our first scheduled fundraiser for this year will be our 3rd Benefit Bingo. This will be held on Sunday, March 22nd at the South Morgan Volunteer Fire Department in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. All money raised will go directly to the Alzheimer's Organization through Team Turner's Walk to End Alzheimers. There will be special games with prizes of $100, tip jars, raffles of prizes donated by businesses in the community, as well as a Ham Bingo in which you take a chance to win a ham. Food will be available as well.
Then, on Saturday, March 28th, we will be having a Bake Sale at the WalMart located on Route 50 West in Winchester. There will be cakes, pies, cupcakes, rolls, and Easter treats available. Come on out and purchase some baked goods!
More will follow, and I will keep updating our Team Turner page, as the year progresses and events come up.
Thank you everyone and please help us "End Alzheimers" so no one ever has to endure the emotional pain of this disease.
