HOSA Students volunteer at Walk to End Alzheimer's Event

 Twenty-three members from Columbia Area Career Center, Battle and Hickman High School Health Occupations Student Association HOSA  chapters volunteered for the annual Walk to End Alzheimers.  Student volunteers set-up water stations, distributed water, and cheered over 600 walkers along on the 1.5 mile long route at Cosmo Park in Columbia.  The event raised over $30,000 for the Alzheimers Association of Greater Missouri.
