2010 Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk
Posted by | October 21, 2010 at 2:25 PM
Saturday, October 16, 2010, War Memorial Park in Martinsburg, WV, was the site for the Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Over 200 walkers--with ages spanning over 70 years--completed the one mile walk and raised over $23,000!
The walk kicked off with a moving rendition of the National Anthem
sung by Natalia Eyestone, and one couldn't help but notice several walkers wiping away tears as they looked upward towards the stars and stripes: it was a moment to honor not just this country, but the loved ones we were walking for as well.
Donations for the Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk are still being accepted, but at $23,000 (and counting!) this was the most successful walk the Eastern Panhandle has had to date!
While this year's walk is over, details are already in the works for next year's event, which will be called the "Walk to End Alzheimer's." Our local chapter is always looking for volunteers, so if you're interested in helping plan next year's event please contact Pam Shriver at firstname.lastname@example.org --perhaps I'll see you at the next meeting!
