More than 20 DAYL volunteers joined the Elder Law Committee the morning of Saturday, October 4 for DAYL’s October Generation Generosity event, the 2014 Greater Dallas Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Walk is the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual major fund-raising event, and this year set new records in both participation and in money raised. Over 6,000 people joined the Walk and helped raise more than $955,000 to fund the Alzheimer’s Association’s care, support, and research programs.
Arriving at either 5:30 a.m. or 8:00 a.m., DAYL volunteers assisted with set-up, sponsor assistance, logistics, tear-down, and support and cheering for the walkers. This year’s Walk, the 31st held by the Association’s Greater Dallas Chapter, was the eighth Walk in a row in which the Elder Law Committee volunteered at the event and organized a participating team.
