Alzheimer Walk totals near $60,000

Sheboygan County showed their support on Saturday, September 9th, as more than 600 participants turned out for the Walk To End Alzheimer’s at Evergreen Park in Sheboygan. The Walk, chaired by Lisa Hurley, Caregiver Coordinator with the Sheboygan County Aging & Disability Resouce Center; Erica Gollhardt, Director of Business Development with Sheboygan Health Services; and Jen Balge, Education Specialist and SPARK! Coordinator with John Michael Kohler Arts Center, has already raised $58,372. That total will keep growing over the next few months as walkers continue to mail, drop-off or donate online. Over the last 12 years, the Sheboygan County Walk has raised over $755,000 to provide care and support for local individuals living with Alzheimer’s and their families, and advance critical research.

“On behalf of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Erica, Jen and I would like to thank everyone in Sheboygan County for doing an outstanding job raising funds that will help the Alzheimer’s Association fund research and provide care and support services to more than 50,000 people in Southeastern Wisconsin living with this disease,” said Lisa Hurley, Walk Co-Chair.

“None of the victories that we’ve achieved as an organization this year, from providing over 33,000 points of service in Southeastern Wisconsin, to speaking up for the needs and rights of those facing the disease, could have happened without grassroots support for the mission,” said Dave Grams, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Wisconsin chapter. “Thanks to local efforts like this, the Alzheimer’s Association has fought for and won legislative approval that more than doubled funding for Alzheimer’s research at NIH in just the last 24 months.”

Donations can still be made to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and should be directed to the Alzheimer’s Association, Southeastern Wisconsin chapter at 620 S. 76th Street, Suite 160, Milwaukee, WI 53214. Please designate contributions to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Sheboygan County Walk. Donations can also be made online through November 30 at

The money raised in Sheboygan County is used to fund research and services including support groups, information and referral services, care consultations and a 24/7 Helpline – 800.272.3900.
