Walkers raise funds to help Alzheimer’s patients, caregivers

Participants gathered at Canan Commons on Oct. 9, 2021, for the Heartland Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

• More than 200 residents participated in this year’s Heartland Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Muncie on Oct. 9, in person at Canan Commons or by watching an online ceremony and walking from home in their own neighborhoods. 

Participants raised $60,134 (and counting) to support the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association, a total 15 % higher than this year’s goal of $52,500, according to a release.

Fundraising will continue through the end of the year, and those who didn’t participate can still make donations at act.alz.org/Heartland.  

Information and registration for local in-person and virtual programs through the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter.is available at alz.org/Indiana/programs or the 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900.

• Ball State University alumna and best-selling author Ashley C. Ford has donated the honorarium from her work as the university’s fall 2021 writer-in-residence to provide free books to numerous community partners.
