HOSA members volunteer at Walk to End Alzheimer's event

HOSA-Future Health Professionals members volunteered at the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s event held at Stephens Lake Park on October 6.  15 students  and advisors, braved the cold and rain to assist with set up, take down,registration,  flower distribution, food table, t-shirt table and cookbook sales. The walk not only raises funds for Alzheimer research, but serves as a way to raise awareness and  support  families who  currently have family members suffering from or have lost a family member to the disease. The flower promise garden is a visual reminder of individuals affected by Alzheimer's as signified by the color of the flower: blue for those with Alzheimer's, yellow for care givers, purple for those who have lost someone to Alzheimers and orange for supporters of the Alzheimer's Association.
