Walk To End Alzheimer’s

Members of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) – Marywood Chapter participated in the 2.5 mile Walk to End Alzheimer’s held last month.

Although the walk was a “virtual” event this year, team members walked on their own or in small groups at various locations in the area and in their hometowns.

The walk raised $61,345 through the efforts of 481 participants. The Marywood’s NSSLHA Chapter, composed of 21 members, raised $1,800 for the event. Money raised will provide funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
