Join Comfort Care Homes Wichita in fundraising for Alzheimer’s research at RIVALZ 2017

When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, you may find yourself wanting to do something to help. Providing emotional and physical support, a listening ear, and a helping hand are great places to start. But in the face of such a destructive disease, one that 5 million Americans live with every day, there is definitely a desire to do more. The Alzheimer’s Association is leading national organization dedicated to accelerating research and education and has local chapters across the country. Participating in fundraising opportunities with our local Central and Western Kansas chapter is a great way to get involved in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Our Local Chapter: Central and Western Kansas

Comfort Care Homes Wichita is an active participant in our local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Our president, Doug Stark, sits on the board of our local chapter and helps make decisions about fundraising events, promotions, awareness, and education.

Last month we organized and hosted the 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, an annual event which encourages residents of Western and Central Kansas to walk, fundraise, and learn about Alzheimer’s disease. Our staff at Comfort Care Homes Wichita walked for family members, friends, Residents, and other loved ones. This event was incredible for our community and our efforts in raising money for Alzheimer’s research.

Upcoming Events: RIVALZ Flag Football Game – November 18, 2017

The next local Alzheimer’s Association fundraising event is coming up on November 18th. Two teams of women divided to reflect rivalries (such as Blondes vs Brunettes) compete in a friendly, but fierce, flag football game to inspire fundraising, awareness, and action in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. While the teams have already been set, there are still ways to participate in this fun event!

We’re very close to reaching our goal and your participation is key! Purchase tickets to the event and direct your donation to either team. Proceeds from both teams go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association. Direct donations to players or teams can be made online if you’re unable to attend.
