Members of the Rockhill Mennonite Community walking team show their support for finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

Nearly 200 people participated recently in a walk to raise money for Alzheimer’s disease research, sponsored by the Everence office in Souderton, Pennsylvania, in cooperation with four continuing care retirement community partners.

The walkers included 51 Everence members. Everence pledged $25 per member who participated, so that’s an additional $1,275 in proceeds on top of the $5,000 raised by all of the walkers.

Everence joined with Living Branches, Rockhill Mennonite Community, Peter Becker Community and Frederick Living to organize the event. “We have existing relationships with all of them, so it was a great opportunity to partner together and support the communities,” noted Randy Nyce, Charitable Services Representative and Church Relations Representative.
