Boy Scouts Show Loyalty to Alzheimer's Association

July 8, 2010

 

For over 15 years, Boy Scout Troop 21 of Wauwatosa has been reporting for a special community service project at the Alzheimer’s Association. This year was no different; on the 1st of July, over 30 Boy Scouts, along with leaders, parents and siblings, gathered to help prepare lawn signs and materials for the six Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walks being held during September and October. The walks will be held in Oconomowoc, Lake Geneva, Kohler, Milwaukee, Fond du Lac and Kenosha.

 

 

 

Steve Weber, Scoutmaster, said the troop has been actively involved with the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk since 1993. “The troop itself has always been engaged in community service, and the Alzheimer’s Association is one of a number of groups we support…it started with the very first Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk in Milwaukee.” In addition to preparing the lawn signs to promote the event, the scouts volunteer on the day of the Memory Walk to clean up during and after the event. The scouts, ages 10 to 18, do not mind doing some of the legwork necessary to make the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk a success. Says Weber, “…throughout my career, I’ve always been impressed with what teens can do, given the opportunity.” Troop 21 of Wauwatosa does service projects on a monthly basis, working together to improve their community.

 

 

 

Held in thousands of communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. All proceeds go to support programs, services and research for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Teams are forming now – online registration is available at www.alz.org/sewi.

 

 

 

The Alzheimer’s Association is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. For more information about Alzheimer’s disease and local services visit www.alz.org/sewi or call the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900.
