In total, 110 health care professionals from three states and nearly 50 cities attended. The virtual event allowed for a broader reach than previous in-person conferences.

Participants walked as individuals or small groups within their own communities and raised more than $11,000 for the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer’s Association. Lake Regional also filled the Nichols Roundabout with pinwheel flowers in honor of employees who have a connection to the disease.
